A couple of years ago, Courtney Love's former attorney Rhonda Holmes sued her in a defamation lawsuit claiming that one of her tweets had damaged her reputation. A California jury found that Love shouldn't be held liable for defamation in 2014, but an appeals court upheld that decision. Hired by Love for a fraud case against a group of people managing Kurt Cobain's estate, an unhappy Love tweeted: "I was fucking devastated when Rhonda J. Holmes esq. of san diego was bought off."

Love had claimed that the tweet was meant to be a direct message, which she quickly deleted after realizing her mistake, although she stated that she still believed it was the truth. The jury had to be convinced that Love knew her tweet was untrue, which they determined they hadn't been provided with convincing evidence to show that Love questioned the truth of her tweet. "...Substantial evidence supports the jury’s finding that Holmes did not prove by clear and convincing evidence that Cobain knew the statement was false or had serious doubts about the truth of the statement when she made it," Justice Thomas Willhite wrote.
