Why didn’t Mark Zuckerberg sue the makers of the Social Network?

The Good Wife answered that question on Tuesday:  “Because such lawsuits are simply bound to fail thanks to a little something called the first amendment.”  But the episode went a step further: it showed what might happen if Zuckerberg did sue, and it even explored an area where he might actually have a winnable case.  The show’s handling of the subject was quite interesting, if not totally surprising:  The Good Wife has a history of wringing a surprising amount of drama out of routine legal procedures… you know, kinda like a certain best picture nominee.
