What happens if, despite the CDA, someone sues ESLwatch for a claim arising from the user-generated content hosted by ESLwatch?

Every party filing a lawsuit has a duty to review the facts and the law before they file suit so that they can demonstrate that the lawsuit was filed in good faith. ESLwatch conducts its business so that we do not run afoul of any exceptions to our CDA immunity from liability for third party content. If someone chooses to ignore the clear application of CDA immunity to ESLwatch and attempts to sue us for the content provided by our users, that party could be required to pay attorneys' fees and be subject to sanctions for having filed a frivolous lawsuit.
