Libel Suit Against Blogger Thrown Out

A libel suit against a local political blogger has been thrown out by a Dakota County judge Thursday.

Michael Brodkorb and his blog have helped to pave the way in libel suits regarding bloggers, the Star Tribune said.

Dakota County District Judge Timothy Blakely ruled that blogs should be held to the same standards of accountability as traditional media.

Groundbreaking news in regard to new media and libel. :)
