AutoAdmit Suit Settled

The suit by two (now former) Yale Law Students against AutoAdmit for harassing and threatening messages recently settled, quietly ending a controversy that began in a characteristically over-the-top anonymous Internet message board.  The suit, filed in 2007, gathered considerable attention because of the offensiveness of the comments, the battle over unmasking anonymous posters, and the lack of clear-cut theories of liability.  (See this post for more information.)   The settlement’s terms are not public.
