D.Utah: Motivational Speaker Sues for Defamation, Seeks to Unmask Commentators

A motivational speaker has sued Elizabeth Arden's, blog host WordPress, and the Buffalo, N.Y.-based news site Artvoice for allegedly hosting libelous comments by users.
In a complaint filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Utah, James Smith, who gives talks about real estate and financial matters, alleges that he was defamed by online comments accusing him of having "extramarital affairs" and asserting that "he and his entities are dishonest, deceitful, untrustworthy, and who fleece investors."
