Facebook Post Costs Former Miss PA $5 Million

Former Miss Pennsylvania must pay Donald Trump $5 million, arbiter rules

A former Miss Pennsylvania USA 2012, who claimed a pageant was rigged, must pay billionaire Donald Trump $5 million for defaming the Miss Universe Organization, a New York arbitrator ruled.

Sheena Monnin, 27, of Cranberry in June resigned the state crown she won in December 2011. She accused Trump, the Miss USA Pageant‘s owner, of fixing the competition held in May in Las Vegas. Monnin claimed another contestant told her that she spotted a list of five finalists before the Top 15 selection began.

The raven-haired beauty queen then took to her Facebook page, calling the pageant “fraudulent, lacking in morals, inconsistent and in many ways trashy.”

The arbitrator, former U.S. District Court Magistrate Judge Theodore H. Katz, said Monnin‘s statements were false and “showed a reckless disregard” for the truth. Read more...

They should shut facebook down. What a bunch of shit its getting to be. I dont have it. And I still wake up every day (imagine that). I dont need to know that my neighbor is doing laundry or running to the store. I guess I dont know why you would want to post all of your information, pictures of your family and everything else online for the world to see. Ive heard of it ruining friendships because someone dont like your picture or what you may have said. Now its cost this girl 5 million bucks? And nowadays thats the punishment between people instead of talking FACE TO FACE. "you cant be my facebook friend anymore. That will teach ya" Unbelievable the society we have become.

that's funny language the fed used, especially considering Trump was involved. He's made a livelihood showing a reckless disregard for the truth. When irony and free speech collide, money trumps all. Shame on the arbitrator, and doom on the Donald.

wow, where are you coming up with the Obama angle? That's just plain weird. Trump hates Obama; I don't think he's going to share the money with him.
