    Tony La Russa suing Twitter

    Tony La Russa sues Twitter over St. Louis Cardinals manager fake page - ESPN

    Not saying that whoever did this is not a scum, but does La Russa really think he will win this suit? How in god's name is Twitter supposed to police a large social networking site?

    Re: Tony La Russa suing Twitter

    True but it did kinda blame him for 2 deaths.... I can definitely see why he would be ticked....


    I hope he does win just because he is the Cardinals manager and he won us a world series lol

    Re: Tony La Russa suing Twitter

    I just think La Russa is wasting his time. This will get thrown out of court pretty fast, IMO. There is no way Twitter can monitor this to make sure things like this don't happen. It is near impossible. Find whoever made the fake account and go after him/her.

    Re: Tony La Russa suing Twitter

    Question is, did he ever voice this displeasure to Twitter? Did he do anything about it? Did he attempt to inform them that this account was not him?

    Or did he go straight to lawsuit in order to get paid? Because that's all this is about.
