Courts Order Amazon To Reveal Identities Of Negative Reviewers

A federal judge in Washington state has ordered Amazon to turn over the identities of people that left negative reviews for a company that makes dietary supplements.

In its complaint against 10 "John Doe" defendants, Ubervita alleges that these Amazon users have been running a "campaign of dirty tricks" against the supplement company, "in a wrongful effort to put Ubervita at a competitive disadvantage in the marketplace." The company claims these defendants orchestrated their negative reviews to give the false impression of a "growing body of unsatisfied customers."
