Doe et al. v. Ciolli, et al. is better known as the “AutoAdmit case”. This is a case brought by two women (Doe I and Doe II) against a group of people who allegedly engaged in libel against them on a website (AutoAdmit). If the allegations are true then the responsible defendants are really despicable people, but that’s really neither here nor there.
Doe II attempted to file a subpoena to obtain the account information of certain Defendants. One of them, Doe 21, moved to quash the subpoena, citing his right to privacy. The court rejected that argument stating:
So, there you have it. You have no privacy right on the Internet unless your ISP grants it to you.
