A Nation of Winklevosses
The unpaid writers' lawsuit against the Huffington Post is bunk.
I don't expect Tasini to accept my legal opinion any more than I expect the Winklevosses will take Judge Kozinski's advice to shove off. That's right, the twins' lawyer has already announced his intention to file a petition for rehearing en banc to overturn Kozinski.
Once the legal system laughs Tasini out of court—as I'm sure it will—I expect him to join forces with Cameron and Tyler. I hope they bill themselves as the Winklevoss Triplets.
But how long before they start suing one another? Send your predictions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't forget that I invented Twitter.
