The easy decision would be that of tossing out the case because my lawyer has no standing in the court. (John Does are in somewhat of a quandary, as well as the representation of such in Texas.) A harder decision is whether the judge's disclosure order can stand review.
Should it stand, it makes a mockery of the Cable Communications Act, and any semblance of privacy. Virtually anything that you regard as private can be disclosed on the basis of a civil suit, with out any proof. That's what the Essent lawyer argued.
But, should a far more over-the-top anonymous blog be allowed free rein without fear of repercussion? Legislation should be enacted to plug the hole.
It comes down to the immediate rights of the individual, and the possible distress placed in a worst case senario.
There is national attention being devoted to this case.
