Today, LearnedFoot the Managing Editor of the Blog Formerly Known as the Kool Aid Report announced that he has filed a lawsuit against the contributors to Power Line.
While Mr. Foot admits that he has no valid cause of action against Power Line, he filed the lawsuit in hopes of "opening a dialogue" with them.
"Ever since the founding of KAR, those guys have ignored us even though we consistently wrote about things that they didn't discover until weeks later. Can't a brother get a holla'?"
Also joining the suit are the principals of the Nihilist in Golf Pants blog. The spokesperson for NIGP gave the following reason for their participation in the suit: "We just want to sue Hinderaker."
KAR is also a party to a separate suit, which was filed in 2005, against one of the Power Line principals, Paul Mirengoff. The class action charges Mirengoff with intentional infliction of emotional distress stemming from his incessant soccer postings.
