Here’s a bit of background in case you missed the whole thing:
Earlier in the month, Inman was accused of defaming user-generated media site Funnyjunk.com back in 2011. Lawyer Charles Carreon issued a $20,000 damages claim to Inman, who then posted a hilarious blog post detailing what exactly had happened and why he wasn’t going to pay Funnyjunk.com or Carreon a bean.
Incensed, Inman also set up a fundraiser on Indiegogo to raise the $20,000 — but not to cover his legal costs. Instead, the money would be split between the National Wildlife Federation and the American Cancer Society.
