Doe v. Cahill

The Delaware Supreme Court has protected the identity of a blogger in the case of Doe v. Cahill finding that the plaintiffs failed to meet the strict standards required by the First Amendment to unmask an anonymous critic. It dismissed the case on October 5 2005. EFF joined in an amicus brief with ACLU and Public Citizen.

This is the first state supreme court to rule on a "John Doe" subpoena or to address bloggers' rights.
