Jury Rules Courtney Love Tweet Was 'Not Defamatory'
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 01.25.2014



Billboard reports that a tweet by Courtney Love in 2010 has been declared to be "not defamatory" by a jury in Los Angeles, California.

In the tweet, Love said a lawyer working for her had been "bought off." She later appeared in court to defend the tweet she wrote about Rhonda Holmes, a lawyer she had hired previously for a fraud case against those managing the estate of her late husband, Kurt Cobain.

The jury ultimately decided that the tweet was not defamatory. According to the Jury, Love's tweet may have have included "false information," but she did not know it wasn't true. Love wrote, "I was ****ing devestated [sic] when Rhonda J Holmes esq. of san diego was bought off."

Love reportedly told the jurors that the message was supposed to be private and was deleted as soon as she realized it wasn't. This was the first time a celebrity had been called to defend an allegedly defamatory tweet in a US courtroom. Love was not present for the verdict, leaving the courtroom after the lawyers' closing arguments in the morning. She later returned to the courthouse as it was closing to hug and thank her lawyers John Lawrence and Matthew Bures after the verdict.
