Judge Throws Out $14 Million Award In Online Libel Case. Mark and Rhonda Lesher were accused, then acquitted, of sexual assault. Then someone or someones (they claimed one of them was Jerry Coyle, the alleged victim’s husband) wrote some blog posts besmirching their reputation. They sued. The jury awarded them $14 million.

FrontBurner commenters remains on a docket somewhere. Watch yoself!
