Think Secret Seeks Free Lawyer

News 19 yro Nicholas Ciarelli (aka Nick dePlume), editor of Think Secret, is looking for free lawyers to defend him against Apple. According to Wired:
On Dec. 28, the website published an article that, citing "highly reliable sources," revealed details of an inexpensive, bare-bones Mac mini computer that would be priced at $500 -- two weeks before the Mac mini was launched at Apple's Macworld conference.

Another Think Secret story on Jan. 6 correctly predicted Apple's rollout at this week's show of a $150, 1-GB version of the company's popular iPod music player. The website goofed, though, on some of the details, citing sources suggesting Apple would also offer a 2-GB version for $200.

While Apple has said the website "solicited information about unreleased Apple products from these individuals, who violated their confidentiality agreements with Apple by providing details that were later posted on the internet," it has declined to answer questions about whether Ciarelli would be sued.
