Band Asks Judge to Order Twitter to Identify Member in Libel Suit


Members of the pop punk band All Time Low are seeking a court order directing Twitter to turn over the name of one of three still unidentified social media users they say falsely claimed that the group sexually harassed or assaulted their teenage fans.

Lawyers for the music quartet filed court papers on Monday with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Daniel S. Murphy asking that the company recently purchased by Elon Musk for $44 billion be ordered to unmask the defendant identified thus far as Doe 2. The band alleges libel and intentional interference with prospective economic advantage in the suit filed Feb. 3.

“Plaintiff brings this motion following extensive meet-and-confer efforts with Twitter’s counsel,” the band’s lawyers state in their court papers. “Twitter ultimately concluded that it was going to apply its standard policy requiring a court order compelling it to comply with a subpoena to identify an anonymous user.”
