Student Lawsuit Settled

Dec 28, 2012

A settlement has been reached in a lawsuit that pitted a blog site against a high school student and his family seeking to learn the identities of people who posted about a rape investigation involving two Steubenville high school football players.

The players were charged with rape in August. A student sued a blogger and anonymous blog posters after comments that he may have been involved in the incident but was not charged. The student's family dropped their lawsuit and attempt to learn the posters' identities.
