Supreme Court Hearings - A.B. by her Litigation Guardian, C.D. v. Bragg Communications Incorporated


A.B. by her Litigation Guardian, C.D. v. Bragg Communications Incorporated, a body corporate, et al. (May 10, 2012)
Case #34240

The case concerns the applicant applying for order requiring disclosure of identity of persons who created fake profile on Facebook. The applicant became aware of a fake profile on the social networking website Facebook, which included a photograph. The profile also included slightly modified version of her name, and other particulars which identified her. The fake profile allegedly included scandalous sexual commentary of a private and intimate nature. The applicant applied for a court order to require Bragg Communications Inc. to disclose the identity of the person who used a particular IP address. The applicant also requested to be identified by initials and ban the public from knowing the words in the fake Facebook profile. The judge granted the disclosure order but not the ban on the fake profile and the Court of Appeal upheld that decision.
