Arianna Huffington Loses Motion To Dismiss in Idea Submission Case

These idea submissions cases can be very tricky, largely because the facts surrounding them are almost always very slippery. Even if not much is there, but a judge and jury "bite" on at least some of the legal bait, the end results can be significant, even catastrophic for the defendant. Here, plaintiffs claim that they came up with the idea of a liberal blog and that Huffington stole the idea. Even if true, I fail to see how meaningful or original this would be, unless there are a lot more details around its execution that we are unaware of. Now, it seems,  there is at least a decent chance a jury will get to hear all the evidence and decide for themselves.
