Gawker's libel lawyer.
Doesn't "Sometimes we get a tip that's just so fun that we can't bear to check it and find out that maybe it was just made up by some loon and/or convicted sexual predator" + publishing that tip = we have "reckless disregard of whether it was false or not"?
UPDATE: Fred von Lohmann of EFF suggests in the comments that Gawker is protected here by Section 230 of the CDA. Is he right? I'm not so sure.
