Former Employee Sues Allegheny Energy Involving Release of Information from Yahoo

Today's Charleston Gazette ran an interesting article on a lawsuit filed by a former employee of Allegheny Energy, Inc. against Allegheny Energy and its lawyers for wrongful use of the court system to subpoena records from Yahoo to uncover his identity. It appears that Allegheny Energy filed a lawsuit against a "John Doe" for the purpose of issuing a subpeona to Yahoo to uncover the former employees identity. The article indicates that the lawsuit involves claims for wrongful termination and violation of privacy.

Brian Peterson over at his West Virginia Legal Weblog has a link to the AP article on the lawsuit.

An interesting lawsuit to watch. If I get time I will try to track down a copy of the complaint.
