The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today (I now have a more direct link) that UALR law faculty member Robert Steinbuch can continue his lawsuit against the publisher of a novel (pictured) based on a sex blog, The Washingtonienne. Steinbuch says his privacy was invaded by the book, which, at least indirectly, relates episodes involving him when he was a D.C. congressional staffer. HBO has optioned the book for a fictional show. The appeals court said a district court had correctly dismissed a claim by Steinbuch that he was injured by that act.

His win today will guarantee more publicity on the invasion of privacy claim, including his denial of blog references to sexual practices, etc. Speaking of Kenneth Starr: You'll find Starr-style details in the court's opinion.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
