Courtney Love has again found herself at the center of a legal frenzy. But this time the case against her is being called "groundbreaking" and could set a legal precedent for whether celebrities (or anyone, really) can be found libel for intentionally putting untrue or defamatory statements on social networks like Twitter and Facebook.

Love is being sued by fashion designer Dawn Simorangkir, who is claiming that a stream of insulting and false tweets from the Hole rocker in mid-March of 2009 destroyed her reputation and cost her millions in lost revenue. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Love's tweets allegedly branded Simorangkir "a drug-pushing prostitute with a history of assault and battery who lost custody of her own child and capitalized on Love's fame before stealing from her."
