The article focuses on the trial of Deborah Jeane Palfrey who is the target of a federal investigation for running a suspected prostitution ring in Washington D.C. A group of anonymous young men created a searchable database of the phone numbers dialed by her business and set it up on www.dcphonelist.com. She wanted to release the data to help the public and press determine her former clients so that they could testify at her trial. This is to justify that her escorts did nothing illegal.
