There are many controversial websites today where posters post negative remarks and comments using false and fictitious names. Offended individuals and entities want to know the true identity of these posters. In a case decided on March 5, 2007, Reunion Industries Inc. v Doe, (Allegheny County, J. Wettick) a Pennsylvania Judge ruled that the offended party must first make a prima facie case showing that it suffered damages. In other words a party seeking the identity of a poster needs to show that the post was false, that the post was defamatory and that there was suffered actual harm.
