Ron Livingston Files Lawsuit Against Wikipedia Editor

Posted Dec 6, 2009

Ron Livingston is best known in the tech community as Peter Gibbons in the movie Office Space. Livingston is having a case of the Mondays (inside joke to Office Space viewers) because someone keeps changing his Wikipedia description. The description claims that Livingston is in a gay relationship when he is actually married to Rosemarie DeWitt. The Wikipedia entry claims Livingston is in a relationship with a man Lee Dennison. Fake Ron Livingston accounts were made on Facebook that claim the same claim.

Livingston claims that the description is completely false and “malicious.” This is why he filed a lawsuit at the L.A. County Superior Court. He is suing for libel, invasion of privacy, and for using his name and likeness without permission. The damages were not specified.
