When will Howard address this? http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/james-woods-loses-bid-discover-835646 Some highlights: A judge rules that the actor's $10 million defamation lawsuit first needs to examine whether an offensive tweet qualifies as a "figurative rhetorical insult." James Woods' annoyance at being called a "cocaine addict" on Twitter will take a back seat to the First Amendment. In the conservative actor's $10 million defamation lawsuit against the anonymous individual who goes by the handle "Abe List," Woods won't be allowed to quickly learn the identity of his adversary. The actor will instead have to wait on a judge's determination as to whether his legal action has any likelihood of prevailing. The provocative lawsuit came in July when Woods targeted a Twitter user also suggested the actor was a "clown" and "scum" and finally a "cocaine addict" upon Woods' criticism that the media hadn't adequately covered a Planned Parenthood scandal. In his lawsuit, Woods complained that the defendant's "reckless and malicious behavior, through the worldwide reach of the internet" had "jeopardized Woods' good name and reputation on an international scale." Looking to send a message to Twitter trolls everywhere, Woods aimed to unmask "Abe List," which prompted a scathing response from Twitter and an anti-SLAPP motion from the defendant, whose social media profile identifies "Abe List" as a Harvard-educated partner at an L.A.-based private equity firm.
