Star hedge fund manager seeks to unmask anonymous blogger

Question Mark

Who was the leaker ?

The New York Times reports that that's what David Einhorn, the outspoken hedge fund manager, wanted to know after one of his firm’s investments was disclosed by an anonymous blogger last year.

Einhorn was so irate about the leak of his investment — a stake in Micron Technology — that he has gone to court in hopes of unmasking the blogger.

In a legal motion that has quietly attracted attention from various corners of Wall Street, Einhorn’s firm, Greenlight Capital, asked a court to force Seeking Alpha — the website that published the anonymous blog post — to identify the writer by name so that, as the firm argued in its legal brief, it 'can sue the pseudonymous poster under his or her real name'.
