A blogger plans to sue Google
A blogger planned to sue the Google for violation of privacy. A blogger, Rosemary Port, who posted a rants about model Liskula Cohen said she was a real victim in the case.
Port and her lawyer said on Monday that they will file $15 million lawsuit against the search engine giant for not protecting enough her privacy.
A New York Supreme Court judge ordered Google to reveal Port's identity after Cohen sued the company to acquire information about the anonymous blogger.
In August 2008, Port, a user of Google-owned Blogger.com, created "Skanks in NYC." The site assailed Cohen, 37, a cover girl who has appeared in Vogue and other fashion magazines. The blog featured photos of Cohen accompanied by derogatory terms.
The judge rejected Port's argument that blogs on the Internet "serve as a modern-day forum for conveying personal opinions" and should not be regarded as fact.
And Legal experts said Port is not likely to win her case.
