Attorneys in Queen Anne's County recently argued a defamation case on behalf of a local businessman. The lawsuit claims that the business owner was defamed by comments about his Dunkin' Donuts shop in Centreville, which were posted to the website NewsZap.com. The comments called the shop one "of the most dirty and unsanitary-looking food-service places I have seen." The owner sought the identities of his critics, but the website owners argued that the posters were entitled to first amendment anonymous speech. The circuit court ruled that the identities should be revealed; the case is currently on appeal.
