A judge in the Supreme Court of British Columbia has ordered Stockhouse Publishing Ltd. to identify a pair of users that accused Vancouver promoter Derek Ivany of being part of a "notorious thug crew," among other things. Mr. Ivany complained that the users wrote material that was clearly defamatory. He had no way of identifying them, as they posted using aliases.
The order, handed down on Jan. 6, 2022, directs Stockhouse to provide identifying information for the users "TheTexan" and "bogdansz." The information is to include names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mails, payment information or anything else that might provide the identities of the users. The judge also ordered Stockhouse to hand over the IP addresses of the users. Those addresses are unique identifiers that can lead to the users' physical locations.
Mr. Ivany previously set out the details of the posts in a petition he filed at the Vancouver courthouse on Nov. 26, 2021. He said that the two users were behind a string of messages that he first noticed in mid-2021. Among other things, the messages accused him of running a pump-and-dump with Agra Ventures Ltd., a Canadian Securities Exchange listing, he complained.
