Request: We received a court order from the state of New York where the government of Kazakhstan sued 100 unnamed individuals ("Does 1-100 Inclusive"). The lawsuit resulted in an order to remove Blogger content that appears to be political speech criticizing government officials. The order did not clearly specify the Blogger posts in question and was directed at the individuals, not Google.
Outcome: We pushed back for more information to request clarification on how the plaintiff attempted to serve 100 unnamed individuals with notice that they were facing legal action.
