Law Professor Sues Blog for $22 Million

An African American law professor has sued Above the Law, a popular legal blog that published a series of posts about Professor Donald Marvin Jones (who it dubbed "The Nutty Professor") following his 2007 arrest on suspicion of soliciting an undercover officer for sex.

The professor claims the blog's posts constituted racism, portrayed him in a false light, invaded his privacy, and infringed the school's copyright on his faculty photo. Jones seeks $22 million in damages.
