Las Vegas Lawyer Wants Google To ID People He Says Defame Him

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas attorney who advertises heavily wants a judge to order the Internet search engine Google to turn over the names of people who post anonymous comments deriding him and his business, and to remove the offending messages.

Attorney Adam Kutner's lawyer, Bradley Booke, said Thursday the goal is to identify people posting what he calls obscene, vulgar and false information about Kutner, and then sue them for defamation.

A complaint filed June 18 in state court in Las Vegas says posts to a "Wild Wild Law" blog have harmed Kutner's personal and professional reputation.

Kutner lost a previous bid to get a court order to identify a person using the screen name "Legal Eagle" for postings calling Kutner names and referring to lawsuits involving his former employees.
