DEFAM, the name of the firm

I am being represented by Latham & Watkins, LLP in the two lawsuits against me. Latham & Watkins has an office on the 58th floor of the Sears Tower and has its own bottled water label.

The case is covered in the current issue of the Columbia Journalism Review. CJR is one of the top couple professional publications for journalists. Here's the quote that summarizes the article.
Since the courts have yet to weigh in on whether the same legal protections afforded to journalism extend to Bloggers, free-speech advocates are keeping close tabs on cases like Nyberg’s.

Adam B of the Daily Kos pointed-out I'm not the first blogger sued for defamation by an elected official. Patrick Cahill of the Smyrna, Deleware Town Council sued "Proud Citizen" for defamation.
