    I saw the amount and knew it had to be american. Only in the U.S can compensation be inflated so much.

    Good. I`m all for free speach, but there there should be consequences when you slander someone.

    You have the right to free speach and the responsibility to use it wisely.

    I think this comment form the story pretty much says it all, "This has nothing to do with free speech. This is about some people and their friends who falsely accused this couple of the most vile things and then they went on a website and posted almost 200 completely false and defamitory things about them. Your headline makes it seem like they were just average people commenting or telling their opinion. Nothing and I mean nothing could be further from the truth."

    BIG difference between being an internet troll and making libelous (not slander) statements for the purpose of the defamation of a persons character.

    @8bithero: So, if I were to discover your real name, and trash you so much you lost your livlihood, you wouldn`t sue me? Yeah, right.

    Right to free speech- but not to knowingly lie and destroy someones life.

    No I wouldn`t. Honestly I couldn`t give crap. Heck, even to go so far as to sue people as well. Just because the rest of us aren`t like AMUUUURICA who sue over everything. Feel free to try.

    lol

    They weren`t trolled, they were ehh...slandered? Libeled? One of those.

    And I highly doubt if they will see one dime of 14 million lmao.

    Once that judgement is made it is up to the claimants to collect on a civil award such as this.

    Glad they won...even though from what I read on topix.com they are sexual deviants and molesters.


    :P

    Sue me...all I have of value are some toenail clippings and a day old taco.

    @8bithero: C`mon, man. It`s one thing to be trolled, but these people`s lives were ruined. That exceeds the right to freedom of speech.

    This case moved beyond "trolling" and into illegal territory. It`s not even close to freedom of speech! There are, and should be, limits.

    This has nothing to do with freedom of speech. The constitution only applies to gov`t action. This case was a tort between 2 private parties.

    Damages are based on many things. How much in actual damage reimbursement is fair and also, if it`s a punishment award, what the guilty party can afford.

    $5000 would be burden for me, but it`s nothing to Donald Trump. So, if you get trolled and want to sue... pray it`s a billionaire dissing you.

    This wasn`t trolling; this was slander. I can call anyone here anything I want, because I`m not using your real name, and you can do the same to me. I don`t give a flying fap about what anyone says about "OldOllie." Oh, I get pissed off, but I know that`s not the same as being injured, so there`s nothing to sue over.

    However, if someone is making false defamatory statements about you and using your real name, that`s another matter altogether, and you can sue them till they bleed from every orifice in their body.

    Those who have been calling George Zimmerman a murderer (he`s still innocent until proven otherwise), TAKE NOTE!

    @OldOllie

    "I can call anyone here anything I want, because I`m not using your real name"

    IANAL, but I would think that if you could demonstrate that you`ve suffered a measurable loss because of slander/libel directed against a pseudonym (such as "OldOllie"), then you could still sue.

    I should imagine that performers and artists who go by a name other than their "real" name are still quite capable of sueing when people say things directed at their stage name.
