The District of Columbia Superior Court case, Gordon v. Mediabistro.com, Inc. et al. (Case No. 0000386-13) concerns alleged uncomplimentary images of Gordon that appeared on the Web site along with posts allegedly intimating attention-seeking, promiscuous behavior. Gordon's complaint characterizes her as a private figure who has suffered humiliation because of the postings on FishbowlDC. Fishbowl DC purportedly defamed the plaintiff in a series of posts under the heading of "Wendy Wednesday."
WebMediaBrands, the owner of Mediabistro.com, is also a named defendant. The plaintiff is seeking $1 million compensatory damages and $1 million punitive damages.
