Anonymous v. Anonymous

About the Case

In a case that the public knew almost nothing about because of a judge-ordered seal, investigative journalist Teri Buhl revealed that she is being asked to divulge the identity of a confidential source. The Media Freedom and Information Access (MFIA) Clinic at Yale Law School filed an amicus brief in the case Anonymous v. Anonymous on behalf of a coalition of major media organizations, including the New York Daily News, New York Times, Newsday, and others. The brief cited the public’s First Amendment right of access in its argument to have the court records made available to the public. Lawyers for the MFIA Clinic attended the March 5, 2019 hearing, where the case records were officially unsealed.
