“Skank” Blogger Rosemary Port Plans To Sue Google For $15 Million
Rosemary Port (pictured left) is a writer that had a blog called “Skanks in NYC.” The blog apparently defamed a model by the name of Liskula Cohen. Cohen sued Google, who was forced by a judge to reveal the Port’s identity. Port was anonymously blogging under a Google Blogger account.
Now that Port’s identity is out in the open, she is mad and is not going to take it. This is why she has informed the media that she plans to sue Google for $15 million for allowing invasion of privacy. Port is a 27 year old studying at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.
She is specifically suing Google for “breaching its fiduciary duty to protect her expectation of anonymity.” Given that Google probably has a team of lawyers on retainer, Port may have a hard time seeing any money coming out of Google but at least she is getting more publicity out of the whole situation.This article was written by Amit Chowdhry.
