Huff Po Lawsuit Tossed

A judge has thrown out a class-action lawsuit brought by 9,000 Huffington Post bloggers who were hoping to get paid. U.S. District Judge John Koeltl rejected claims that the writers deserved $105 million, or about one third of the price that AOL paid to buy Huffington Post last year. Koeltl, concluded that "no one forced" the bloggers to "repeatedly provide their work with no expectation of being paid," and said "they got what they bargained for when their works were published."
