Model Liskula Cohen Wins Court Battle with Google to Learn Blogger's Identity


I have worked with a few clients who have been attacked on blogs and forums by people who hide behind the anonymity of bogus names. A New York court has forced Google to reveal the tormentor.

It’s about time the courts got involved to get rid of these petty tormentors!!!!

Anonymous Blogger Called Cohen a 'Skank' and a 'Ho'

By RICH MCHUGH and NOEL HARTMAN

She had graced the cover of Vogue and found success as a model. But Liskula Cohen's latest achievement came in the courtroom.

Horrified by the hateful words of an anonymous blogger, Cohen took Google to court in hopes of forcing the company to reveal the writer's identity -- and won.
"Why should anybody let it go? If somebody attacks somebody on the street, you're not going to let it go … why should I just ignore it?" Cohen told "Good Morning America" exclusively today. "I couldn't find one reason to ignore it."
Google initially refused to unmask the unidentified writer, who Cohen, 36, claimed defamed her by posting words like "skanky," "ho", and "whoring" below her photographs. The IP address turned over by Google revealed that the blogger was an acquaintance of Cohen's.
Cohen said it was a woman she hadn't seen in about a year, but who was a regular fixture at dinners and parties, but she was not, as Cohen had feared, someone who was close to her.
