Another newspaper has prevailed in a court battle over the identities of people who commented anonymously on its Web site.
A federal judge in Pennsylvania held last month that The Pocono Record did not have to reveal the identities of several people who commented anonymously on an article the paper wrote about a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against the Pocono Medical Center.
The newspaper received a subpoena sent by the plaintiff, hospital employee Brenda Enterline, who wanted the information to help her win the lawsuit. Enterline argued that the comments on the Web site were made by people who had personal knowledge of the situation at the hospital, and could help her prove that she had been in a hostile work environment.
