alexandria attorney thomas davenport subpoenas google and domains by proxy in hopes of id'ing cenlabriarpatch bloggers
the other day cenlabriarpatch.com posted the gmail they received from google which began ... "google has received a subpoena for information related to your google account," to turn over all the info they have on email@example.com ...
the gmail apparently originated due to the 26 september 2011 application made by thomas davenport's secretary, brittany kier, to command google inc to produce:
"ip address," account information, registrant's name,address, telephone, user identification, user account name, digital footprint, internet protocol address, email header, originating ip accounts, host name, ip decimal and any information related to and that would identify user profiles/accounts concerning "firstname.lastname@example.org" to the davenport firm, 1628 metro drive, alexandria, louisiana 71301, within five (5) days of receipt of subpoena duces tecum service.also on the same day, mr. davenport's other secretary, tewanna sarpy, made application to the clerk for another subpoena duces tecum this one served on domains by proxy about their info for, cenlabriarpatch.com:
[T]he account information, registrant's name, address, telephone, name listed on method of payment, user identification, user account name, digital footprint, internet protocol address, originating ip accounts, host name, ip decimal and any information related to and that would identify user profiles/accounts, and owner of the domain "cenlabriarpatch.com" to the davenport firm ... within five (5) days of receipt of subpoena duces tecum service.around noon yesterday the alexandria city court clerk faxed what should be the true copies of the applications and subpoenas duces tecum. they are in the case the davenport firm l.l.c. and thomas d. davenport, jr., versus daniel ray slater a/k/a danny slayter | civil docket number 120116.
this move struck us as odd because this suit was filed ages ago [around 22 august 2011 actually] and the clerk's office has no record of it ever being served on the defendant. there is a letter in the suit file (we meant to get - try again on monday) from the plaintiff to the court requesting to withold service.
yet subpoena applications are being made and issued, in that;
the first post on the cenlabriarpatch blog was posted on 16 september 2011 "the story of a little klansman."
and 10 days later the davenport firm is applying for subpoenas yet the suit was filed weeks earlier and the defendant was never served. "please serve daniel ray slayter, a.k.a. danny slayter, 2828 jackson street, alexandria, louisiana 71301," the petition reads at page 6.
this is only a few blocks from the city courthouse. so what gives?
it will be interesting to see if there will be any any responsive pleadings or contradictory hearings.
anyway, there's a lot more that could be and probably will be written. so ... stay tuned.
