Jacob Payne, the blogger behind The Ville Voice and Page One Kentucky websites, has filed a lawsuit in Jefferson Circuit Court against the “anonymous blogger(s)” responsible for a website, dubbed “Watching Jake,” that is critical of Payne, which in turn prompted a bonafide Courier-Journal article on the matter, jettisoning the story into the real world.
The lawsuit seeks a court order to reveal the anonymous blogger’s identity (which sounds pretty familiar…), and alleges that Watching Jake’s “sole purpose … is to defame, malign, and tarnish” Payne’s reputation (which sounds pretty ironic…).
Payne could not be reached for comment, but his lawyer, Dan Canon, tells LEO Weekly that “if somebody thinks that Jacob Payne is putting out erroneous information about people, then those people can contact Jacob Payne.”
To hell with the pill-mill pipe line and shameful budget “compromises”: Posted below is the five-page suit in crappy-albeit-full-color photo gallery form, after the jump.
