This article reports that the Sixth Appellate District Court in Santa Clara County, California has reversed a trial court ruling which would have allowed a former executive at SFBC International Inc. to subpoena Yahoo! for the names of her critics. The lawsuit was filed in 2006 by former SFBC Chairman and Chief Operating Officer (COO) Lisa Krinsky against an anonymous Internet poster for making verbal attacks against the company's executives on a Yahoo! message board. The lawsuit's allegations include libel and fraud.
