Alleged Wikipedia Source Sued for Libel

The Miami Herald has an article this morning about the pro-golfer Fuzzy Zoeller suing a Miami law firm, alleging that the defendant is the source of defamatory material about him posted on Wikipedia. The reporter does a nice job of describing the legal issues involving liability for defamatory information on the internet. Zoeller's attorney, Scott Sheftall, is a Davidson grad and a friend of mine. I don't know anything about the firm that is being sued and have never heard of it.
