Google sued over Blogger comments

Liskula Cohen, a Canadian model has sued Google for a number of snarky remarks that were made by a blogger using Google’s Blogger service. According to reports, she has been called ’skanky’ and ‘an old hag’ by an anonymous blogger on a website called Skanks in NYC.

The suit that was filed in Manhattan, seeks a court order compelling Google and its Blogger service to identify the anonymous blogger. Google declined to discuss any specifics, only responding to the claim by saying they sympathize with victims of cyberbullying but “take great care to respect privacy concerns and will only provide information about a user in response to a subpoena or other court order”, so we’ll leave you with a quote from Cohen instead:

“I’m tall, I’m blond, I’ve been modeling for many years, and people get jealous,” she said. “If I had to deal with everyone who is jealous, I wouldn’t have time to do anything else.”
