Guy Sues Both Wikipedia & Wikileaks To Get 'His Side Of The Story' Told

from the unclear-on-the-concept dept

Ah, the ridiculous and silly pro se lawsuits... Eric Goldman points us to one of these crazy lawsuits that will be dismissed quite quickly, from a guy suing both Wikipedia and Wikileaks, demanding that both companies tell his side of "the story." The guy claims that false information has been distributed concerning his own responsibility in someone else's death, and he hopes to set the record straight. Within the lawsuit, the guy claims that:
"The real story is a such a hoot it someday will be told."
That may be true, but it won't be told due to Wikipedia and/or Wikileaks being forced to tell it via this lawsuit. The guy doesn't even seem to attempt to explain what either Wikipedia or Wikileaks have to do with his side of the story or under what claims he's suing. He just wants his story told. Perhaps someone should let him know he can just set up his own website.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.
