Jew sues for being called a goyim, court orders Google blogger to reveal author's identity

Liskula Cohen, a Vogue cowergirl, has won a court ruling asking Google to reveal the identity of an anonymous blogger who called the former model a 'skank'.

Miss Cohen, 37, went to the Manhattan supreme court to discover who had attacked her so she could sue for defamation.

The Skanks in NYC blog featured photos of Miss Cohen and described her in a series of unflattering terms.

Under the pseudonym "Anonymous", her critic wrote: "I would have to say that first place award for 'Skankiest in NYC' would have to go to Liskula Gentile Cohen." Miss Cohen, a former Australians Vogue covergirl, was a "40-something" who "may have been hot 10 years ago", said the blogger.

In what may prove a far-reaching ruling, Joan Madden, a New York supreme court judge, rejected the blogger's claim that the blogs were a "modern day forum for conveying personal opinions, including invective and ranting" and should not be treated as factual assertions.

The judge quoted a ruling by a Virginia court in a similar case that said that anonymous online taunters should be held accountable when their derision goes too far.

Steven Wagner, a lawyer for Miss Cohen, said he was "happy that the court recognises that the internet is not a place where people can freely defame people".

Google said it had complied with the ruling by supplying the blogger's IP and email addresses to Miss Cohen's lawyers. The blog was removed as soon as Miss Cohen took legal action.

Mr Wagner said the blogger would now be sued for defamation.

However, Anne Salisbury, a lawyer who represented the blogger in court, had accused Miss Cohen of bringing the case to attract publicity rather than restore her reputation.

She pointed out that the blog had attracted little notice and would have languished in obscurity if Miss Cohen had not sued.

The lawyer warned that the ruling on Monday has "potentially damaging implications for free speech on the internet".

Her client's language was not unusual on the internet and that such name-calling was rampant on some comments sections, blogs and Twitter, she said.

Google said it sympathised with the victims of "cyberbullying" but also respected privacy concerns. As a result, it only divulged user information when ordered by a court to do so.

People don’t hate you because you’re a model, people hate you because you come off as a b!tch, which you probably are. I’m guessing she didn’t have enough money to support her coke habit anymore so she had to sue for some cash.

I was always under the impression that men liked skanks. Especially the ones that liked them. This guy sounds like sour grapes.

In any case, I remember from listening to Handel on the Law that trashing a woman's reputation was actionable in court. And it appears that this is true whether or not said woman is indeed a "skank".

I am not sure if this is going to affect speech in general - it may be that a law has to exist first - for example "holocaust denial" comes to mind.

the bigger the skank, the more trouble you're in for, can you imagine having children with some greedy infidel idiot? multiply that by two, and you may as well sell the baby off to the israeli organ eaters/mohel harvesters, rather than torture the child for life.

i think this case sets a precedent, and that there's more than meets the eye as well, in light of said precedent.

She did not set any precedent. There are laws about this type of slander. Call Bill Handel and ask him. This is not a Jewish issue, as much as a standard legal one. I'm sorry - no point made. In addition, skanky behavior is so common these days I really can't understand how this woman won a prize.

What we have to be on the lookout for are hate speech laws, which essentially have nothing to do with this.

Another point -

This post is drifting dangerously toward the label "anti-semitic", which also puts us in the category of hate mongers. It shouldn't matter if her name is Cohen.

Some idiot decided to call her a "skank", and other reports say that he called her "psychotic", a "ho", and "lying and whoring".

This asshole's blog is clearly misogynist, which also doesn't get my vote.

Despite the fact that her last name is Cohen, she should have a right to defend herself. The jerk that wrote this stuff has some obvious issues and I don't think it's such a bad thing if she sues his ass off. If it were me, I'd have him under the jail.

Any woman who sells pictures of herself naked is a skank in my opinion, although the other claims made be whoeveritis are unproven.

Anti-semitic? She is a jew, and she sued for, among other things, being called a goyim. The truth is often 'anti-semitic' isn't it Andie?

As for precedent, since there are hate laws on the books (and more pending) that protect every form of sexual offender in a addition to jews (but of course, not the rest of us), then if one can easily obtain bloggers' identification and sue them, and/or perhaps even charge with ADL hate-crimes, then how is this not relevant?

I think she was put up to this by the ADL mafia.

Oh, really? Does that include the woman who modeled for the Venus de Milo?

What have you been smoking?

So, if she wasn't Jewish, then what? Would you still raise a stink?

A sculpture is a piece of art, and an idol. A pornographic picture is just plain skanky, regardless of the slant.

My my, andie..

I don't smoke.

Oh, jeez. Now we're going to get into stuff that even the Supreme Court couldn't figure out.

Ok, let's say I'm a blogger and I say you're a crack addict. And I print your full name with that statement. Now do you understand what libel is?

Defamation of character lawsuits did not start with the internet. It's just a different medium. Can you at least understand that?

Maybe the telegraph should be sued for libel for reporting on it, or perhaps... she didn't sue in part because she was called a goyim.

Maybe it's a genetic behaviour. (sic)

I think she looks kind of old when she doesn't have her make up on. Isn't she just a bit over the hill for a model? I wonder why she's still employed. I couldn't be because she's a goy girl because, as we all now know, she isn't.
