H3H3 Lawsuit Update: Defamation Claims

Claim Three, Square One...

We have a lot of news in the ongoing H3H3 lawsuit and we have a lot of ground to cover in not a lot of time.

To recap the lawsuit. H3H3 is a popular YouTube channel that was sued by Matt Hoss, better known as “The Bold Guy” after the H3H3 team, Ethan and Hila Klein, did a reaction video to one of his pickup artist videos.

The initial lawsuit caused quite a stir, sparking a crowdfunding effort that resulted in the Fair Use Protection Account (FUPA) that is being used to defend the Kleins in the case.

The Kleins, after getting representation, quickly filed a motion to dismiss but now the case has taken a bit of an odd turn as the motion to dismiss has, itself, been dismissed by the defendants. Now the case has a brand new complaint with a brand new response to that complaint.

So, with that in mind, we take a look at all the things that have happened in the past month or so including how the case, in many ways, is more or less back where it started.
