Circle Group Holdings, et al. v. Yahoo, Inc.(2005 L 9099)

In this litigation, our Firm represented an anonymous individual whose identity became the subject of a lawsuit filed by, among others, the Plaintiff Circle Group Holdings against Yahoo, Inc. Circle Group Holdings filed an action seeking to obtain presuit discovery from Yahoo! that would identify the anonymous individual. Specifically, it sought to obtain the identity of our client by obtaining identifying information related to his pseudonym.

Despite the trial court's initial order allowing discovery, our firm resolved this matter on behalf of our anonymous client.
