Delaware Supreme Court to hear blog suit

A lawsuit seeking to identify anonymous posters to a blog is to be heard by the Delaware Supreme Court.

The case, filed by Smyrna Town, Delaware Councilman Patrick J. Cahill and his wife Julia, alleges that four anonymous posters to a community issues blog “defamed” the councilman and his wife in late 2004.

According to NewsZap, an initial request for disclosure to the lower New Castle County Superior Court was denied June 14.

Lawyers for the anonymous defendants claim that the case is an important test of the First Amendment right to speak anonymously without fear of retribution.
