Could there be light at the end of the BS tunnel?

July 14, 2009

Two massively flawed rulings are hopefully on their way to being remedied.

First the MySpace Mom Lori Drew is free after her convictions for bullying a 13-year-old girl who eventually committed suicide were tossed. While her actions were horrific and reprehensible, the law was not applied properly in this case. They tried to use laws along the lines of protecting people from being hacked to the creation of a fictitious profile on MySpace.

On top of this, Jammie Thomas is asking for a retrial in the case that led to her being slammed with a $1.92 million verdict from the RIAA. For more about this case, read my previous post on the matter.
