Unpaid Bloggers Suing Arianna Huffington

Recently Arianna Huffinton (and her initial business partners in the Huffinton Post) received both an enormous amoung of flak and an enormous amount of money when she agreed to sell the Huffington Post to AOL for the high price of $315 million. As a result of the sale, many uncompensated bloggers were upset that their words were helping make an already-rich Arianna Huffington even richer; currently there is a lawsuit pending against Arianna Huffington on behalf of the angered bloggers. Already speculation that compensation could reach into the millions when and if a settlement or court decision is reached.
