No Trial for Courtney Love… Lawsuit will be settled

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Exclusive: Courtney Love will not go to trial in her Twitter lawsuit.

I’ve learned exclusively that Courtney’s lawsuit, brought by clothing designer Dawn Simorangkir who said she’d been defamed by the Hole singer on Twitter, is in the process of being settled. All that remains are the signatures.
A few months ago there was a lot of speculation that the case would be a first in court. At issue, what happens when you call people names on Twitter?

It turns out: not much.

Love’s attorney James Janowitz is said to have worked with Bryan Freedman, Simorangkir’s attorney, to reach simple agreements. In the end, it turns, my source says, that Twitter is pretty much open to interpretation. Calling names it on is much like being on the playground.

On Twitter, Love called Simorangkir all kinds of things including “a drug-pushing prostitute with a history of assault and battery who lost custody of her own child and capitalized on Love’s fame before stealing from her.”
