Despite the headline, I note that Daily Business Review reporter Jessica M. Walker tucked this appellate law reference into her conclusion:

"While the federal courts have tended to protect the confidential[iality] of John Does in cybersmearing cases, Florida's 3rd District Court of Appeal in Miami took a position against anonymous cybersmearing in a 2000 case, Hvide v. Doe. The 3rd DCA rejected the anonymous posters' claim to protection under the First Amendment."
