Mark Waid Provides Update On His Comicsgate-Related Case

Here. Waid seems pretty happy with this recent development.

Me, I never feel safe about lawsuits until those involved have been retired for ten years and/or perhaps passed away. There have been a lot of bad decisions made in a lot of courtrooms, and this will likely continue intermittently until the end of time.

I do think this particular update gets at the heart of what I worry after in this recent case and a few others like it, the idea that there's a righteous threat for people to oppose that should keep people from expressing opinions within an artistic community. A negative opinion of someone shouldn't be conflated with an unfair outcome, ever. It's two very different things, with different standards.

At any rate, I hope this case goes away sooner rather than later.
