Added to the theatre surrounding "Hogan v Gawker" is a new show. It's lawyer Charles Harder's letter to Gawker to remove an article about Donald Trump's hair.
In it Harder's clients Ivari International and Edward Ivari are allegedly presented in a false and defamatory way. Here is the coverage in The New York Times.
In this act is now high-profile Gawker general counsel and president, Heather Dietrick. She responded that the request was too broad. She contends Ivari plays a small part in the article.
Dietrick has been featured in the media lately as an atypical general counsel. That's because of both her spokesman-like role in the company and that she also serves as the president. Some question that dual role as eroding client-attorney privilege.
Meanwhile there is a question if venture capitalist Peter Thiel has been directing this latest scene. He is supporting Trump.
