Huffington Post blogger files suit for $105 million
Blogger Jonathan Tasini is going after both Huffington Post and its new parent company Aol and seeking class action status. After the sale of HuffPo for 315 million, Tasini figures that he and his fellow contributors deserve a third of that money. The site that the case is without merit because Tasini and thousands of others contribute to the site not in exchange for money but in exchange for the ability to get their names and work out to readers around the world and that that was the agreement they signed on for.
