  • 2. EC-Council Copyright © by EC-Council All Rights Reserved. Reproduction is Strictly Prohibited News: Model Sues Google Over ‘Skanky’ Blog Post Liskula Cohen filed a defamation suit to reveal blogger’s identity AccessAtlanta.com Staff Tuesday, January 06, 2009 Model Liskula Cohen, a Vogue cover girl, is suing Google over a blogger who named her the “#1 skanky superstar” on a blog hosted by the search engine’s subsidiary, according to a report in the New York Daily News. Cohen, who was in the news last year when she was hit in the face with a vodka bottle by a doorman at a Manhattan hot spot, filed the defamation suit to determine the identity of the blogger. “It’s petty, it’s stupid and it’s pathetic,” Cohen told the Daily News of the sniping. “And when I do find out who did this, at least I’ll know who my enemies are.” Her lawyer, Steven Wagner, admitted that it’s not easy to identify anonymous bloggers. “We think we have a case,” he said. “This is libelous, it’s defamatory and you shouldn’t just get away with this.” “I’m tall, I’m blond, I’ve been modeling for many years, and people get jealous,” Cohen said in the report. “If I had to deal with everyone who is jealous, I wouldn’t have time to do anything else.” Google declined to comment on the specifics in Cohen’s complaint.

Ms Howlett alleges the material was defamatory and she wants unspecified damages for defamation, equitable compensation, legal costs and an apology from the defendants.
