    See also: Redskins owner Dan Snyder. He was furious at an article in the local alt-weekly, the City Paper, and tried to sue CP out of existence. The article contained little that wasn't well known to anyone in DC who was paying attention, and if not for the lawsuit no one outside the Beltway would have read it. His suit was groundless and full of ridiculous charges (including anti-Semitism since there was a caricature of him w/ a big nose) and was ultimately dropped...but not before sports-related and gossip sites publicized it far and wide.

    Belinda Conaway, a Baltimore City Councilor, filed a a lawsuit for defamation and infliction of emotional distress against a local blogger for publishing that Conway filed a homestead property tax credit for a house outside Baltimore while claiming to live in the city, in a house owned by her parents (both of them also elected politicians in B'more.) She had to drop the suit..but the resulting publicity caused her to lose her re-election.
