New York Judge Allows Lawsuit Against Huffington Post to Proceed

On Tuesday, a judge refused to throw out a lawsuit by two political consultants, Peter Daou and James Boyce, who allege that The Huffington Post’s founders stole the idea for the online news website from them, Fox News reports.

The two sued Arianna Huffington‘s site in November 2010, alleging they had originally come up with the plan for the site’s “blend of blogs by prominent contributors, news aggregation and original content.” Huffington Post denied this, and also pointed out that it was odd that both consultants waited six years before speaking up. But if the whole thing sounds like a stretch to you, it didn’t to the judge, who denied a motion by Huffington Post lawyers to dismiss the lawsuit. It’s now time for fact-finding and discovery.
