Korbel Sues To Force Comcast To Reveal Identities Of Anonymous Critics

The Santa Rosa, California Press Democrat says that Korbel Champagne Cellars will ask a Sonoma County judge to force Comcast to reveal the names of anonymous Craigslist posters who criticized the company.

The anonymous posts alleged that Korbel retaliated against employees who reported sexual harassment, bribed law enforcement and was planning on cutting down redwood trees on its property. Korbel says the allegations damaged the company and is trying to force Comcast into revealing the identities of the posters.

Comcast says it will comply with a court order if one is given — but only after informing its customers that their identities are being sought.

“Our policy is to give our customer notice and sufficient time to decide whether to contest the disclosure,” [a Comcast spokesperson] said.

If they do not choose to fight, their identities would be revealed.
