The Delaware Supreme Court has protected the identity of a blogger in the case of Doe v. Cahill, finding that the plaintiffs failed to meet the strict standards required by the First Amendment to unmask an anonymous critic. It dismissed the case. This is the first state supreme court to rule on a "John Doe" subpoena or to address bloggers' rights.

This is the Delaware Supreme Court decision, reversing the superior court and remanding with instructions to dismiss plaintiff's claim with prejudice.
