Faculty in the spotlight

Published: September 11th, 2000

Category: News Briefs

Professor Lyrissa Lidsky’s article, “Silencing John Doe: Defamation and Discourse in Cyberspace,” was recently published in the Duke Law Journal. She has been working pro bono with the ACLU to formulate legal strategies for curbing a recent rash of defamation suits designed to intimidate Internet message board users into silence by stripping them of their anonymity. On Sept. 20, she will present oral arguments in the Third District Court of Appeal in a case testing the scope of the right to speak anonymously on-line. She also is writing a book review of A Law of Her Own for The Jurist and a reference work on freedom of the press with her co-author, R. George Wright.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
