Courtney Love's attempted to argue that, because the internet is effectively people screaming unsubstantiated obscenities into one another's iPads, she shouldn't be put on trial for alledgely defaming her former lawyer Rhonda Holmes on Twitter.
The judge didn't buy it:
Judge Michael Johnson agreed with [Holmes], saying, "Ms. Love has a big following and they all hang on everything she does and says and Tweets."Which manages to be both terrible news for Love, and also the most generous thing anyone has said about her in a very long time.
The defamation trial will now happen in January.
