Jury sides with Courtney Love in trial over tweet

LOS ANGELES – A jury says Courtney Love did not defame one of her former lawyers in a 2010 Twitter post.

Friday’s verdict comes after an eight-day trial that centered on Love’s statements against San Diego-based lawyer Rhonda Holmes.

Love hired Holmes to pursue a case against the estate of her late husband, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. The case was never filed and Holmes said Love fired her.
