In Lawsuit For Emmy Statue Holding COVID Ball Crowdsourcing the Truth Offers Deal

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Dec 10 – Citing publication of photo of the EMMY statuette holding the COVID-19 ball, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has sued Crowdsourcing the Truth. 

On December 3, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Valerie E. Caproni tells a discovery dispute conference. Inner City Press called in (it was asked about its phone number, having previously covered this Court via Google Voice without a number) - and live tweeted it, here:

Judge: Has there been a protective order entered in this case? 

TV Academies' lawyer: We thought there was an agreement. But they're going to show the discovery to these conspiracy theory fans. And try to get more YouTube views.

 Judge: This is very unorthodox. Why is it appropriate?

 Crowdsource the Truth lawyer: We'll get volunteers. Otherwise it's too expensive to review. But I haven't seen the discovery yet. 

Judge: That's not an adequate explanation. What about home addresses? 

Crowdsource the Truth lawyer: They would agree not to disclose addresses. 

Judge: So you're going to hire them?  

Crowdsource the Truth lawyer:  Volunteers. 

Judge: These are not paralegals. I am precluding this without you coming back to me. OK, 3d party subpoenas These too will be limited, or require pre-approval.

Now on December 10, the parties have written to SDNY Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang that Crowdsourcing the Truth "tendered a settlement offer... rejected by email on December 9." They made a counteroffer, still being considered; neither are ready for a formal settlement conference at this time.

The case is The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, Inc. et al v. Multimedia System Design, Inc., 20-cv-7269 (Caproni)
