A recent Google search for "youth sports" showed 379,000,000 results. "Safety in youth sports," 66,800,000. "Problem parents in youth sports," 21,600,000. And "problem coaches in youth sports," 108,000,000. Subjects of tremendous interest.This use of Google has troubled some observers -- is this an improper form of the courts gathering evidence? An interesting debate. So you gotta love footnote 3 in Gibson:
[Defendant] also contends that Gibson is a public figure because "a Google search [on his name] yields about 10,100,000 results in 0.45 seconds .…" This argument might be persuasive to someone who has never performed a search on the Internet. Anyone who has done so knows that virtually any search produces a similarly enormous number of results in a fraction of a second.Touche!
