    First things first. Lots of people want to know what’s going to happen, whether we will settle or fight. We don’t know. To be honest, neither of us have firmly decided one way or the other. When people start using the law in unorthodox ways to bully or extort from small nonprofit blogs, you don’t want to cave to them. Then you find out just how much it costs to stand on principle. Righthaven knows the breaking point for most people, hence the multiple low-key settlements. Rest assured, Clayton, David and TheArmedCitizen will cooperate with the law to the fullest...

    A WOMAN whose doctors refused her infertility treatment because she is a lesbian has sued before California's Supreme Court, her lawyer said today. "Our client's doctors' behaviour goes against established medical ethics and violates California civil rights law," said Lambda Legal lawyer Jennifer Pizer in a statement announcing the suit was filed yesterday. "The doctors claim a right not to comply with California's civil rights law because they are fundamentalist Christians and they object to treating a lesbian patient the same way they treat other patients," the group said in a statement. An appeals court overturned a trial court decision...

    ARIVACA, Ariz. -- Jim Chilton is one of hundreds of ranchers targeted by environmental groups for allegedly allowing cattle to despoil the West's backcountry. Now Mr. Chilton is showing ranchers how to turn the tables on the green groups by using their own playbook. The Center for Biological Diversity in Tucson is known for its lawsuits against ranching practices -- and for its methods of posting photos on the Internet that it says depict land destruction. So when the Center came after Mr. Chilton, he struck back with a defamation suit in Arizona Superior Court in Tucson last year....
