Followup: “Academic Advantage fires law firm that threatened BoingBoing”

by Walter Olson on January 20, 2011

The law firm in question had sent a nastygram over a blog post that wasn’t even about their client, but merely combined the phrase “academic advantage” with (in comments) the word “scam.” Academic Advantage now says it has “severed its relationship” with the L.A. law firm involved.

It would seem appropriate for Academic Advantage to sue the law firm for the harm done to Academic Advantage’s good name and reputation and subjecting them to ridicule by sending out the irrelevant letter in the first place. Quid pro quo. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

When you hire an attack dog, don’t be surprised when he attacks someone.
