BWAHAHAHAHA. After Andrew Breitbart filed to have Shirley Sherrod's lawsuit dismissed on fairly ridiculous grounds, the court ruled Wednesday that Sherrod had standing to go forward with it.

TPMMuckraker:

Reached on his cell phone by TPM, Breitbart said he hadn't yet heard of the judge's decision but would take a look and get back in touch if he had any comment.Sherrod sued Breitbart over an out-of-context video he posted of her on his Big Government website which made a story she told about overcoming racial prejudice sound like she was advocating for discriminating against whites.

Breitbart told TPM back in March that he stood by everything he's said about Sherrod and that he was excited for the discovery phase of the lawsuit.

I'm so looking forward to the discovery phase myself. I'd love, for instance, to find out who Breitbart's anonymous editor was.

Can you help us out?
