Error Could Dismiss $11M Judgement Against TheDirty.com

Posted:

The racy website, TheDirty.com has been getting a lot of buzz - now a lawsuit filed against it may get thrown out in court, all because of a typo.

Sarah Jones is a teacher and Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader.

She sued TheDirty.com after the site posted a story about her sexual exploits as a cheerleader, including a report that an ex-boyfriend gave her a sexually transmitted disease.

Earlier, a court awarded Jones $11 million in damages in her defamation suit against the gossip website.

We've learned that her attorney made a clerical error that could be costly.

Instead of suing TheDirty.com, he listed the website's parent company as TheDirt.com .

The missing "y" could be reason enough to dismiss the $11 million judgement, as TheDirt.com and TheDirty.com are different websites.

The Scottsdale, Arizona-based site, TheDirty.com, solicits photos and information from its "Dirty Army," then sometimes adds commentary to what users send in.

The Web site lists the disclaimer, "Postings may contain erroneous or inaccurate information. All images are credited to their original location. The owner of this site does not ensure the accuracy of any content presented on TheDirty.com."
