Courtney Love Settles Twitter Defamation Suit for $430,000

Source: Rolling Stones


Posted on 09 Mar 11

Hole singer Courtney Love has settled a lawsuit brought against her by Dawn Simorangkir, a fashion designer who claims that Love defamed her in a series of messages on Twitter last year. Love will pay Simorangkir $430,000, to be paid out in payments ending in 2014.

Love was originally set to go to trial for the lawsuit in January, but it was postponed when the parties began to negotiate a settlement. If the case had gone to trial, it could have set a legal precedent for what qualifies as defamation on Twitter. Simorangkir had alleged that Love had used her power as a celebrity to deliberately damage her career as a fashion designer.
