Fulbright & Jaworski v. EarthLink Legal Dept., No. 07-MI-0097 (N.D. Ga. filed 2007).
Status: Dismissed.

In an effort pursue copyright claims against an anonymous blogger who posted several questions from the 2006 Multistate Bar Examination on the “Tab and Brandy” blog (tabandbrandy.blogspot.com; now removed), the organization that creates the exam (the National Conference of Bar Examiners) subpoenaed Google (owner of the Blogger service that hosted the blog) to obtain the blogger’s IP address. After obtaining the address, the conference’s law firm filed suit against Earthlink, identified through the IP address as the blogger’s Internet service provider, to identify the blogger. The case was dismissed the same day it was filed; it is unclear whether Eartlink provided the information.
