Western Wind Energy Corp. and its president, Jeff Ciachurski, have filed another petition in the Supreme Court of British Columbia looking to identify a Stockhouse user. The petition claims that a user named "Ancsababy" created 11 false messages, among them one that read, "Jeff steals our money and the company." Western Wind says that Stockhouse, as an "innocent, but involved, third party" enabled the communications. The petition asks for an order compelling the site to provide identifying information for "Ancsababy."

The petition is the second that Western Wind has filed in the past two months over defamatory posts on Stockhouse. A previous filing in May sought help identifying posters "j_mart" and "patheticnews." According to Western Wind, "j_mart" created posts that implied Mr. Ciachurski was a crook and was intentionally manipulating the company's price. The company has not yet identified "j_mart," but it has determined that "patheticnews" is a customer of Telus Corp., and is seeking a court order that would compel assistance from Telus.
