In re Subpoena of Drasin, Advanced Career Techs., Inc. v. Does 1-10, No. ELH-13-1140, 2014 WL 585814 (D. Md. Feb. 12, 2014)

Key Insight: Court granted motion to quash subpoena to administrator of blog on which anonymous users posted disparaging comments about plaintiff because the burdens of the subpoena on the blog administrator — surrendering personal hard drives to plaintiff for up to 30 days, and granting plaintiff access to his personal information on the hard drives — outweighed the very little benefit, if any, that would result from the subpoena, and because the requested information was available from another source, i.e., the blog host, Google

Nature of Case: Defamation, trade libel, commercial disparagement

Electronic Data Involved: Hard drives and servers
