I am accused of creating a blog about somebody, calling him a criminal, calling his daughter ugly, and then linking to many lawsuits filed against him in civil court, listed on our county's website, and then making commentary.
The blog was up for a few months, then removed. The plaintiff copied the whole blog, and made his own website and posted it all, with his responses to everything.
I am being sued for $1 million. I have no money. The plaintiff did not show up to the court date so it was dismissed with prejudice. He then filed a motion for reconsideration on the same day, stating they sent an email to the court requesting to appear by telephone, but their email bounced back into their spam and they caught it too late.
There is a new court date next month to rule on this motion.
I don't know what to do or what to expect. Any insight is greatly appreciated.
