Courtney Love did not defame her former lawyer Rhonda Holmes in a 2010 Twitter post, a jury said on Friday.
The verdict comes after an eight-day trial that centered on Courtney Love’s statements against San Diego-based lawyer Rhonda Holmes.
Courtney Love, 49, hired Rhonda Holmes to pursue a case against the estate of her late husband, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. The case was never filed and Rhonda Holmes said Courtney Love fired her.
Courtney Love’s tweet suggested that Rhonda Holmes had been “bought off”.
Attorneys for Courtney Love maintained that she meant for the post to be a private message and few people saw it.
Rhonda Holmes’ lawyers sought $8 million in damages.
Courtney Love attended and testified at the trial but was not present when the verdict was read.
