Twitter Lawsuit Company Tells Its Side Of Story

Horizon Realty, the Chicago company that sued a former tenant for libel after she posted an offhand remark about them on her Twitter account, must have felt the full effects of Internet notoriety today. Jeff Michael—who was quoted in the Chicago Sun-Times saying that Horizon was a “sue first, ask questions later” sort of company—has issued a response. Click here to read it (PDF). The short version: he says the tenant in question sued them first (about a month after the tweet in question), and they’re all in deep disagreement about any existence of mold in the apartment.
