Writer sues the creator of media men list for defamation

As the #MeToo movement was building, a secret list began circulating online among women in the media industry. It was a crowdsourced spreadsheet of sexual assault and harassment allegations against men in the media industry. The sheet eventually leaked. Writer and filmmaker Stephen Elliott was on the list, accused of rape and sexual assault by an unnamed person -- or people. Now he’s suing the list’s creator for libel.
