    i agree--if the court believes she has adequate cause to be allowed to proceed anonymously, the American Lawyer should have respected that finding. Instead, you just undid all that. While the firm bio is public, most people would not bother to go through it and would leave it at that. It is one step towards tabloid journalism.

    What is the purpose of The American Lawyer speculating as to the name of the litigant? It adds nothing to the article other than to expose the litigant to further negative consequences. And if, perchance, the attorney whose professional biography "matches" that of Jane Doe is not the actual litigant, what are the consequences to that attorney? I see no journalistic and certainly no ethical rationale for publishing that information.
