I previously blogged this case in May. The underlying facts involve the arrest and ultimate release of a ship’s crew that was armed to combat piracy. I’ll focus just on the Section 230 issue. A person involved in the underlying indicent wrote an allegedly defamatory article about the incident and submitted it to an industry publication, the Maritime Executive. In the May ruling, the court said that the publication qualified for Section 230 immunity but gave the plaintiffs a chance to try again.
