UPDATE: Lawsuit Not Going Off in a Huff

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA - FEBRUARY 23:  Co-Founder/...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeNew York Supreme Court Justice Charles F. Ramos yesterday denied defendants' motion to dismiss, allowing two former political consultants' lawsuit against Huffington Post co-founders Arianna Huffington and Kenneth Lerer to proceed to discovery, the Associated Press reports.

Peter Daou and James Boyce sued last year, claiming Huffington and Lerer stole their idea for an online news aggregating site (see "TUOL" post 11/17/10). Their 26-page Complaint includes counts alleging idea appropriation, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, fraud and unjust enrichment.
