iXL v. Doe
An Internet consulting start-up brought suit in Georgia state court against an individual who criticized it on a Yahoo! bulletin board, alleging that the defendant was an employee in breach of his employment contract promising not to disparage the company or reveal internal information. Represented by Public Citizen, the defendant moved to quash, arguing that he was not an employee and submitting confidential proofs of his non-employee status. Because the plaintiff has gone out of business, the case was not pursued to decision.
