Huffington Post Bloggers' Suit Against AOL Is Dismissed

AOL Inc. (AOL) won dismissal of a suit by unpaid bloggers seeking $105 million for their work on the Huffington Post.
U.S. District Judge John Koeltl today threw out the suit, filed last April by writers seeking a share in AOL's $315 million purchase of the news and opinion website run by Arianna Huffington. Koeltl said the bloggers submitted pieces to the Huffington Post for the exposure, knowing they wouldn't be paid.
