Billboard reports that today U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder delivered a tentative ruling, saying it appeared In Touch “cherry-picked” facts to support its “Rehab for Blake” headline. This means she is inclined to allow the suit to go forward.

Elizabeth McNamara, an attorney for Bauer, tells Billboard that if Snyder’s ruling becomes official, it will be appealed.
