Ottawa Paper Turns Over Blogger Information

Posted by wlpo on July 30, 2010

If you like to attack people on newspaper blogs, this may make you think twice about doing it.

The Ottawa Times has turned over information about a blogger on it’s website after being ordered to do so in court.  The Third District Appellate Court in Ottawa ruled in that the newspaper should turn over information about a blogger that claimed Don and Janet Maxon were bribing city officials to support a controversial bed and breakfast that never even happened.  The Maxon’s want the information so they can sue the blogger for defamation.

Circuit Judge Eugene Daugherity dismissed the Maxon’s case in October of 2008.  The appellate court though ruled against Daugherity.
