Class Action Lawsuit V. Pleasanton Weekly?
Original post made by Not Cool PW on Dec 22, 2012
The post should be removed as its defamatory, damaging and untrue.
Thanks PW. Im sure with a little investigation, you could figure it out before
Somone suffered ridicule, public scorn, harm to business or employment ramifications. Then there are damages and a damaged individual could take action for damages.
Post Below if you have suffered financial harm or other harm
through PW's forums. Perhaps we have a class
Action lawsuit in the making.
Anyone else about had it?

@ not cool pw....its called freedom of speech. The pw, like the patch, the tri valley herald, the sf chronicle and ny times follow journalist principles before running their stories. (i.e. Confirm sources, etc.) Individual citizens are responsible for their own post or "blog", the pw is not responsible for verifying the content of everyones post.
If the pw ran an article, rest assurd they did their due diligence. if you dont like what your reading, stop reading it.

Hi Nancy - have you had your reputation or
Business harmed by FALSE stories on PW? Have you
Been impersonated multiple times? I dont mean
To seem rude or disrespectful towards you. But First Amendment does not cover pornpgrapic speech, speech which incites a crowd to
Anger, child pornography, defamatory or false statements published by the media and more.
Freedom of speech does not include false impersonation or defamation especially when it causes financial or other harm. I would love to not have to read
Pleasanton Weekly. However, it seems to have become a forum through which a certain individual communicates and Harasses other individuals including myself.
Freedom of speech as guaranteed by the Constitution has limits. Those limits have been crossed.

My livelyhood was seriously disrupted when a poster made fun of me selling corndogs at the tea party gathering, held at the fairgrounds, which then moved to KFC to account for members' coolinary tastes. I don't know if my family will ever recover.
