If you’ve been following the drama between myself and celebrity blogger Necole Bitchie, here’s the latest. The shook blogger took a gamble yesterday and had one of her attorney buddies send me a bogus cease & desist email ordering me to remove all posts pertaining to one “p/k/a Necole Bitchie (Miss Bitchie).” They didn’t even put her real name in the letter. What kind of foolishness is that?
Actually, the C&D was a photo scan of an actual letter that I’m guessing they intend to send through snail mail, though I doubt I’ll get it.
As I’ve told you bloggers in the past, receiving a cease & desist letter via email is not legal unless it’s sent certified through the mail. So you should not panic when you receive a C&D in this manner. Most attorneys think that sending C&D orders through email should be sufficient enough to scare the pants off of you. But Necole’s attorney obviously is not familiar with me or my blog.
Anyway, it’s obvious that Necole’s attorney didn’t even bother to authenticate Necole’s claim that I altered her email that she sent to an industry executive (hey, bloggers can be executives too). For instance, the attorney didn’t ask her to produce the original email so they could check the headers or anything. Had they done that they would have known that she was lying her azz off.
Anyway, I forwarded the foolishness to my attorney because she snacks on bogus C&D orders between meals. If any of you bloggers need a really good attorney, who is Harvard educated and knows her chit, let me know and I’ll pass on her info to you.
EDIT: I forgot to add that putting a legal disclaimer at the end of emails is not legally binding in most states. I thought all attorneys knew that?
