Rebecca Phillips cited a post by Omar Ha-Redeye in the Fall 2010 issue of the Campbell Law Review in a paper entitled, Constitutional Protection for Nonmedia Defendants: Should There be a Distinction Between You and Larry King?
The paper discusses the tensions between constitutional law, i.e. the First Amendment, online defamation cases, and the needs of members in society to protect their reputation.
