The blogger had called the model names such as “skank” and “old hag” “psychotic,” “lying,” and “whoring.”
Now, blogger is outed and turns out she is a 29-year-old student at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology. And, blogger says she’s going to sue Google for outing her name.
Suing to the tune of $15 million in damages.
The judge rejected the blogger’s argument that blogs on the Internet “serve as a modern-day forum for conveying personal opinions” and should not be regarded as fact. I’m so confused.
Cohen’s attorney, Steve Wagner, said he couldn’t believe Port’s nerve in suing Google.
“Her being a victim here? I have trouble understanding that in its entirety,” he said.
Google says this (when asked by CNN for an interview):
“Google does comply with valid legal processes, such as court orders and subpoenas, and these same processes apply to all law-abiding companies. At the same time, we have a legal team whose job is to scrutinize these requests and make sure they meet not only the letter but the spirit of the law.”
