(Newser) – The blogger at the center of a lawsuit against Google has defended comments calling a model a skank, reports the New York Daily News. "I feel my right to privacy has been violated," said New Yorker Rosemary Porter, 29, whose identity was revealed under court order after model Liskula Cohen, 37, filed suit. "This has become a public spectacle and a circus that is not my doing. Before her suit, there were probably two hits on my web site."

Porter says she now plans to sue Google for failing to protect her identity. The catty blog post was apparently sparked after Cohen, who's an acquaintance of Porter, bad-mouthed the blogger to a former beau. The court case could have major ramifications for other bloggers making stealth attacks under the cover of anonymity.
