High Court Aids Irish Red Cross in Unnamed Blogger Pursuit

Ireland High Court Justice Brian McGovern has allowed the Irish Red Cross to add monolithic search engine Google, Inc. as a defendant in a legal action seeking to track down an anonymous blogger.

According to an account on the BreakingNews.ie Website, the High Court ordered UPC Communications, an Internet services provider, to disclose the identity of the unnamed blogger whom the Irish Red Cross claims has "willfully distorted and misconstrued" internal information about the organization that has hindered its fund-raising efforts.

The Irish Red Cross has since dropped its litigation against UPC and directed its attention toward Google, which the High Court  agreed has facilitated the critical blog. Google is a major donor to the International Red Cross, which should make matters interesting.
