As expected, the ultimatum posted by Alexandra Goddard has gone unanswered. The bio post  remans on Twitter. Susan Earman, Aka @Astro__x was ordered to remove Ms. Goddard’s username from a bio post that accused her and two other individuals of stalking.

As I reported in my earlier blog article, Mrs. Earman was given 24 hours to comply “or else.”

As of this writing, I do not know what the “or else” would consist of. The first and most obvious course of action would be for Ms. goddard and the other two individuals named on the post is to issue a cease and desist. This order would be applied to Mrs. Earman or any individual or individuals who operate the twitter accout. This is important to note since it was reported that Mrs. Earman is deceased. No proof of her death has been put forward and someone is sending out direct messages in her name.

The next option for Ms. Goddard and the others is to file lawsuits individually or as a class action to seek punitive damages against the Earman estate.

Why the Earman estate and not Susan Earman directly? Quite simple, actually. Remember that there is a presumtion that Susan Earman is deceased. This would mean that since the Twitter account was originally her property, it would go to whomever was entitled to the account as either a next of kin or someone who had been designated to operate it. The liability for the contents also transfers to whomever inherated it. If Susan Earman is still alive, the Twitter account remains as part of her estate. 

Another way for Ms. Goddard and the others to cover their legal bases is to sue BOTH Susan and her estate. This assures that Mrs. Earman would remain a defendant dead or alive.

One final note. All of these individuals could engage in this action pro se. Deric Lostutter has shown how far and how much of a nuisance someone can be by filing one of these actions without the costs of hiring legal council. If anything, requests for discovery from the defendant could go a long way to answer questions that have been asked for years.

Stay tuned

      There is the option of going the Pro Se route. Deric Lostutter chose this course of action and has been a pest to this day.

    Murt, with all the socks out there, how can you even be sure that the account does, in fact, belong to the Susan person? Just curious.

      There is the possability that the Astro account is being run by an impersonator. One of the options for Goddard and the others is to take the legal steps to attain who is the owner of the account and then proceed with the appropriate legal remedies.
