United States Second Circuit

Ricci v. Teamsters Union Local 456, 14‐1732

Judgment dismissing plaintiffs' defamation claims against defendant GoDaddy and retaliation claims against defendant Teamsters Union Local 456 is affirmed, where: 1) the alleged false statements about plaintiffs were republished on a website hosted on GoDaddy's servers; 2) the defamation claims fail because the Communications Decency Act shields GoDaddy, a web host, from defamation liability; and 3) the labor claims are barred by the National Labor Relations Act's six-month statute of limitations.
