Application for court order seeks to determine owner of anonymous accounts used for harassment

Three doctors are seeking a court order that would require Google Canada to reveal who created several anonymous accounts that are reportedly being used to send defamatory emails. Arsh Jain, Amit Garg, and Kristin Clemens–who are each affiliated with Western University’s Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry–are seeking a Norwich order, which would oblige Google to disclose evidence that could be used in litigation. According to CBC, unproven allegations about Jain, Garg, and Clemens were sent by email from at least four different email accounts to multiple contacts, including individuals at McMaster University, the University of Toronto, and Schulich. In their application, Jain, Garg, and Clemens drew attention to how the emails have negatively affected their reputations, careers, and mental health.
