C: Injunctive Relief Pursuant to the Uniform Code of Expectations and Section 10 Due to Breach of Confidence in Content
19. Pursuant to Section 10-WTF of the Uniform Code of Expectations, District of Columbia, Readers owe a duty of good faith to City Paper to (i) not assert City Paper is in default of providing quality local content without first actually reading said content and (ii) negotiate a lowering of expectations outlined in the Forbearance Agreement.
20. Pursuant to Section 10-CMS of the Uniform Code of Expectations, District of Columbia, City Paper has received a mandate from parent company CLI to focus on Internet-related content. As such, readers owe a duty of good faith to City Paper to (i) understand a shift in readership away from newsprint and toward computer screens and (ii) acknowledge that this shift supports writings regarding personal interactions with critters and the recirculation of news generated by other outlets.
21. Pursuant to Section 10-DCIST, Readers further breached their duty of good faith when they wrongfully posted comments made in regard to City Paper, its content, and its compromised employees on Web sites neither owned nor operated by City Paper or CLI. To wit: Commenter “monkeyrotica,” in posting on independent Web property DCist, stated s/he picks up the paper only “to check out what’s on sale at the porno stores.” In a later comment, “monkeyrotica” suggested that if City Paper writers would “stop writing like a bunch of lofty horses asses pontificating on matters of burning import, maybe locals might start caring. Maybe!”
22. Pursuant to Section 10-DUH, Readers also failed to aid City Paper in its discovery of the existence of the World Wide Web (“Web”) and Web commentary (“Blogs”). Readers owe a good faith effort to City Paper to inform City Paper of the demands on their time and attention.
