CHATTER AWAY: Overnight Open Thread

Billboard reports:

The blogger who helped chronicle the disastrous Bahamian Fyre Festival and his friend have won a $5 million lawsuit against the event’s founder Billy McFarland.

Seth Crossno and co-plaintiff Mark Thompson, who both live in Raleigh, North Carolina, were handed a victory against McFarland after he failed to respond to court proceedings for over a year.

McFarland is currently in jail and due to be sentenced next month on two counts of wire fraud. Last month, prosecutors brought new charges against him, alleging he continued to scam people since Fyre Festival while out on bail.
