Well this is a blast from the past: Lomax v. WikiMedia Foundation, Inc. et al.
If you google it, you will see discussion of Abd’s lawsuit is all over Wikipediocracy, Sucks, Reddit, etc. etc.
Abd once got into a discussion with Wil Sinclair, of Lila Tretikov fame, at Wil’s now defunct website, Offwiki or somesuch. They started discussing I think it was OCD, and the website was never the same afterwards, although some blame liquid threads for its demise.
I forget whether Abd (or was it his family) has some disorder or not, but I’m sure he has spoken about it publicly.
Since this doesn’t have a whole lot to do with gender, I’m just going to make one comment.
“Every man who is his own lawyer, has a fool for a client.”
This probably goes for every woman too.
It is being reported that WMF has retained the law firm Jones Day and the attorney is Christopher M. Morrison of Boston.
Somebody please take up a collection for Abd, before he gets hurt.
