Kipnis & Harper Collins Fail To Get Lawsuit Dismissed

The motion filed by Laura Kipnis and her publisher, Harper Collins, to have philosophy graduate student “Jane Doe”‘s lawsuit against them dismissed has been denied. 

Jane Doe is suing Kipnis and Harper Collins for public disclosure of private facts, false light invasion of privacy, defamation, and intentional infliction of emotional distress (details here), through the publication and promotion of Kipnis’s recent book.

The defendants moved to have all of the claims dismissed. The Judge, John Robert Blakey, denied the motion in a decision released yesterday. The text of the decision is here (via Leiter Reports).
