Tex.: Google doesn't have to disclose Southeast Texas bloggers identities, Texas Supreme Court says

Beaumont Enterprise
An order to compel Internet giant Google to disclose the identity of two anonymous bloggers accused of defaming a Southeast Texas private detective and blogger has been struck down by the Texas Supreme Court. Phillip R. Klein sued Google to learn the identity behind two blogs, OperationKleinwatch and SamTheEagleUSA, that directed satire and criticism at him. Klein sought their identities to pursue claims of copyright infringement, defamation, conspiracy and invasion of privacy against them.
