RP and the NHLiberty 'candidate' video

"US Magistrate Judge Maria-Elena James has ruled that Ron Paul's campaign cannot force Twitter and Youtube to reveal details about "NHLiberty4Paul," a user whom the Paul campaign is accusing of falsely distributing critical videos of Jon Huntsman in his name. PaidContent has more:

In a two-page order, James stated that the Paul campaign had not met the "good cause" criteria necessary to obtain the order. This means that the campaign can't for now obtain the identities of the defendants who are listed in the lawsuit as "John Doe." Jerrold Abeles, an attorney for the Paul campaign, said in a phone interview that the order is not the end of the road for the Paul campaign. Abeles said the campaign still has the option to file an amended request seeking to unmask the John Does."
