IA Global, Inc. v. Does 1-1000
Publicly traded company sued anonymous internet message board posters for statements made on the Yahoo! finance message board dedicated to IA Global that were critical of the company, its performance, and its management. IA Global subpoenaed Yahoo! for identifying information for three posters. Public Citizen, representing one of the posters, moved to quash the subpoena and strike the complaint under California's Anti-SLAPP statute. Before the court heard the motions, the company dismissed the lawsuit as to Public Citizen's client.
