Liskula Cohen, Vogue Model, Wins Right To Identify Blogger Who Called Her "Skanky," "Ho"
Following an order from a New York court, Google has outed a woman who insulted a former model using the company's Blogger service.
Google (GOOG) handed over the woman's identifying information to Liskula Cohen, who was trying to find out who had insulted her on "Skanks in NYC", a now-defunct site created using Blogger. Cohen argued that she had been defamed by the site's anonymous proprietor, and needed to find out who that person was in order to sue them. On Monday, Supreme Court Justice Joan Madden agreed, and yesterday Google complied with her order.
