In response, Horizon Group Management LLC filed a libel lawsuit Monday against Amanda Bonnen, a former tenant of a North Side apartment building it manages.
The real estate management firm — which is seeking $50,000 in damages — says that one of Bonnen’s Twitter posts “maliciously and wrongfully” slammed her building at 4242 N. Sheridan and the management company.
The May 12 Tweet from “abonnen” read in part: “Who said sleeping in a moldy apartment was bad for you? Horizon realty thinks it’s okay.”
How very droll.
I hope abonnen has a positive experience with our legal system. Of course, Horizon may have been less than prudent bringing the lawsuit – people who try to censor or punish those who have cyber-maligned them often just spread the damage further. See the Streisand Effect.
