Battle over Thor Hearne's Wikipedia Entry Continues

Two days ago, in this post, I noted that someone had deleted information on Thor Hearne's Wikipedia page noting Hearne's affiliation with and controversy over the American Center for Voting Rights. I updated to post to note that someone from Hearne's law firm, Lathrop and Gage, made a change to that page. Since my post appeared, Wikipedia readers restored information about on ACVR on Hearne's Wikipedia page. But now, that information was deleted again by someone from ip address 65.204.234.241, which also belongs to Lathrop and Gage. Indeed, this search shows that someone at that law firm also has been editing the page on the American Center for Voting rights too.

My Slate article on Hearne and ACVR, which apparently has not been deleted by anyone at Hearne's law firm, is here.
