Lomiko Metals Inc.'s chief executive officer, Amrit Paul Gill, has won an order in the Supreme Court of British Columbia directing Stockhouse Publishing Ltd. to identify two users who posted information that Mr. Gill says was unquestionably defamatory. The order, handed down on Friday, Sept. 21, states that Stockhouse must provide names, IP addresses and any other identifying information it has for users "gwaa" and "buybuybuy1." Mr. Gill complained that posts by the users called him a "fraudster" and a "jerk."

Details of the posts are contained in a petition Mr. Gill filed at the Vancouver courthouse on Sept. 18, 2012. The messages by the user "gwaa," as described in the petition, began on June 29, 2012. They stated that Mr. Gill was guilty of "criminal fraud" and "criminal conspiracy"; was a "fraudster"; had findings of "conspiracy to commit fraud" and "criminal fraud" made against him; and that Mr. Gill had committed regulatory infractions.
