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.
