A gossip website operator defended himself Wednesday against a defamation lawsuit by arguing that a former Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader featured in posts on the site is a public figure.
Health officials say the number of people sickened by a deadly meningitis outbreak has now reached 105.
A woman who worked as a Kentucky high school teacher and moonlights as a Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader will get to press her lawsuit against a website and its owner over lewd online comments about her that made her life at school so uncomfortable she quit her teaching job.
"As a teacher with those things on the Internet, that I slept with all the Bengals and had two STDs, I didn't want to face my students," Ms. Jones said Wednesday, adding that she had to tell all her classes that the posts were untrue.
Ms. Jones has said repeatedly that she has had sex with only two people, her former husband and the teenager.
