“Skank” Blogger To Sue Google For $15M For Revealing Identity To Liskula Cohen
We have been following the case of where model Liskula Cohen sued Google to reveal the identity of a blogger who used Google’s Blogger to call her a “Skank.” Google was ordered by a US Court to reveal the identity of the blogger, so Liskula Cohen can sue her. I, like many, were shocked that a court would make such a ruling, but nevertheless, the ruling was made and Google handed the name over.
ZDNet now is reporting on a NY Daily News story that the blogger who Google revealed the anonymity of is now suing Google for $15 million. Rosemary Port, a 27-year-old student at the Fashion Institute of Technology, is suing Google for revealing her identity to the courts. She said, ” feel my right to privacy has been violated.” Port’s lawyer said she is suing because Google “breaching its fiduciary duty to protect her expectation of anonymity.”
After all of this, Liskula Cohen decided not to sue this blogger after all. In fact, she forgave the blogger and has decided to walk away from the matter.
