From the article:

In November, Gibson and his partner Willard Jackson was lampooned in Lawrence Ross’ satirical send-up about their non-payment of contracted journalists titled

“Dear Ebony Magazine: FU, Pay Your Writers!”

Citing copyright infringement, they filed a federal lawsuit against the owners of “The Root,” who published the article.

In June, Prince reported that U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein of the Southern District of New York wrote in his decision that the satire was protected by the First Amendment.
