North Carolina Court Denies Motion To Quash in Anonymous Posters Case

A North Carolina court has denied a website operator's motion to quash a subpoena requiring it to divulge the names of anonymous posters who criticized a landlord living in Henderson, NC. The judge applied the Dendrite test and determined that the plaintiff had made out a prima facie case for some of the postings appearing on the website Homeinhenderson.com.
