Portland, MA-- John Richardson, a reader of the blog Disputations, has filed a lawsuit against the blog owner, John da Fiesole, for suggesting that Richardson clip and save some of the sayings offered on the site. Richardson was injured while attempting to physically cut the computer screen.
a crude re-enactment - please don't try this
Attorneys for da Fielsole claim that it is common knowledge you can't cut a computer screen and that 'clip and save' was not meant literally. But Richardson insists that da Fiesole should've known that "somebody would try it" and should pay his medical bills and compensate him for accompanying mental anguish. The case is pending and is scheduled to be presented on NBC's television show, The Blogger's Court.
