(Newser) – A Los Angeles judge dismissed Steven Tyler’s blogger lawsuit yesterday after unnamed suspects failed to show up in court, NBC Los Angeles reports. The Aerosmith frontman couldn't identify the online scribes he accuses of defamation and impersonation—that is, lying about him and his girlfriend, and posing as his dead mother. The judge dismissed the case without prejudice, meaning Tyler can return if he names the accused.
