Law Newz reports:
A group, lead by Ohio attorney Joni Turner, is organizing a class action civil lawsuit which they claim will be a “legal takedown” of CNN for “defaming,” and spreading “fake news.” Turner announced the effort on Periscope, and has since set up a website asking for class action members to sign up. #OurTakeDown claims that “it is time to hold CNN accountable.”
In a Periscope video that was watched by thousands, she told her viewers that she was rooting for CNN to say “worse things,” especially taking aim at Don Lemon for his reporting. She said that after a lot of research, she has determined that they may have violated a number of laws including 18 USC 2385 by advocating the overthrow of the government.
Since joining Periscope eight days ago, Turner has garnered more than 150,000 likes, and has been watched by thousands. LawNewz.com confirmed she is an attorney in the State of Ohio with an active bar license. According to records, Turner had her license suspended in 2003, and again in 2006.
At the 9:00 mark in the stupidly long stupid video below, Turner exults in her “discovery” that cyberbullying and menacing laws can be used against CNN. Yeah.
