Dominick v. MySpace, No. 2008L005191 (Ill. Cir. Ct., Cook Co. filed May 12, 2008)
Status: Dropped by plaintiff.

Larry Dominick, town president of Cicero, Ill., filed a petition seeking an order requiring MySpace to reveal the author of two fake profiles of him, which he alleges included defamatory comments and privacy violations. He dropped the case after the Electronic Frontier Foundation submitted an amicus brief in the case, arguing that the petition did not demonstrate a viable legal claim sufficient to overcome the poster’s First Amendment right to anonymity.
