@kateschapira Kate Schapira: Jan 10, 2018, you tweeted: "Women I know & care about have suffered from Joseph Massey's predatory behavior, so I am sharing this letter..." Who are the women who have suffered from #JosephMassey's "predatory behavior"? Your close friend #KateColby, #MeToofraud?
@kateschapira Kate Schapira: Truth is your female poet friend, #KateColby, happily had a *consensual affair* w #JosephMassey 2014-17. After he told her husband about affair (guilty conscience) & his book was accepted by @weslpress (her "personal dream press") she unethically #MeTooed him.
@kateschapira @weslpress Kate Schapira: Jan 10, 2018, #KateColby posted on her FB that #JosephMassey is a "serial abuser" w link to website, "The Poet Joseph Massey Is An Abuser." Same day, you (Colby's female poet friend in Providence) tweeted the link to the same site? Cc @BrownUniversity @mkimarnold

#Defamation & document sealing thread: In a new Second Circuit caselan Dershowitz and the Miami Herald sought to unseal documents alleging sexual abuse by Dershowitz in connection with sex trafficking of women by finaciaer Jeffrey Epstein. Case is here: ca2.uscourts.gov/decisions/isys…
Two of Epstein’s vics sued the US under the Crime Victims’ Rights Act on grounds they had been lied to re Epstein’s light plea. While case was pending, Virginia Giuffree tries to join, alleging sexual abuse by Dershowitz, Maxwell and others. Allegations reached the press. +
Trial court strikes allegations. Maxwell issues statement calling them “obvious lies.” Giuffre sues for defamation. Discovery ensues, but parties file nearly one-fifth of docket under seal. Court denies motion for summary judgment & issues a redacted opinion. Parties settle. But!
