McMann v. Doe, Civil No. 06-11825-JLT (D. Mass. dismissed Oct. 31, 2006).
Status: Dismissed

Real estate developer Paul McMann sued the unknown creator of the web site, which promised to feature tales of his alleged misdealings. The court rejected two attempts by McMann to unmask the identity of the site’s creator, and dismissed the case for lack of jurisdiction. The court also noted that the contents of the site were actionable under Massachusetts law. McMann then sued in Arizona, with a similar result.
