Ontario Judge Orders Google, Bell to Release Blog IP Information

Ontario Superior Court Justice Nancy Mossip has ordered Google and Bell Sympatico to produce IP and other information to enable the identification of individuals associated with an allegedly defamatory political blog published from Meaford, Ontario.

A court order Friday has moved Meaford another step closer to finding whoever was behind a blog the municipality's lawyer claims defamed the mayor and staff and disrupted the recent election.
The order requires both Google Inc. and Bell Canada to provide by next Friday documentation Toronto-based lawyer Adam Ezer has requested on behalf of Meaford. Superior Court Justice Nancy Mossip made the order in Owen Sound court Friday morning.
...Meaford council has directed lawyer Adam Ezer to find out who was behind the blog, which became an issue in the recent Meaford mayoral race between incumbent Francis Richardson and Coun. Jim McPherson.
