Idaho judge considers anonymous comments lawsuit - Spokesman.com - June 1, 2012
what if they are a thief?
Then the lawsuit would get thrown out. But I don't think that will happen.
This is based on a law that George W. Bush signed off on a few years ago that basically makes it a crime to post something on the internet anonymously if the target of your post is a known person and the comment is untrue or unprovable.
Should be interesting.
Well if it's an over reaching law signed by Bush I'm sure Obama and the super majority of dems got rid of it.
It went mostly unnoticed. Hopefully this case will shine some attention on it and something will be done about it.
Funny..no such law exists for anonymous donors and the lying adverts they buy.
That's an excellent point.
People get sued for libel/defamation all the time.
Nothing to do with Bush and nothing new....
Damned frivilous lawsuits.
rdean is shaking in his boots.
