In Stone v. Paddock, in which Mudd Law Offices successfully co-represented the appellant anonymous speaker John Doe, the First Appellate District of the Illinois Appellate Court issued an opinion in which it adopted a standard for determining when an anonymous speaker's identity may be obtained in association with alleged defamation on the Internet. The standard adopted follows the Third Appellate District in Maxon and requires particularity in a petition seeking the identity of an individual for alleged defamation. In adopting the standard, the Court reversed the lower court's order compelling production of John Doe's identity.
