Submission + - Cohen Drops Lawsuit After Outing Anonymous Blogger (nydailynews.com)

JumperCable writes: According to a recent Daily News article, model Liskula Cohen, who was suing the 'Skanks of NYC' blogger for defamation is reportedly dropping (page 2) the lawsuit now that she has outed the anonymous blogger. This brings to question the potential for abuse of the legal system to out anonymous authors even if there is no intention to actually pursue a case against an anonymous individual.

Also, according to the article, the outed blogger Rosemary Port, intends to sue Google for $15 million because it "breached its fiduciary duty to protect her expectation of anonymity." Do web hosting services even have a fiduciary duty to protect their clients? Or is this all legal bluff & bluster?
