Melbourne gangland lawyer Zarah Garde-Wilson is suing technology behemoth Google in a bid to unmask an online reviewer who she suspects is actually a legal competitor. The lawsuit, which was filed in the Federal Court on Monday, paves the way for defamation action against the author. Ms Garde-Wilson is being represented by Mark Stanarevic, of Matrix Legal, who recently succeeded in convincing a Federal Court judge to order Google to unmask the identity of an anonymous reviewer who allegedly defamed another client, Melbourne dentist Matthew Kabbabe. The order, by Justice Bernard Murphy, compels Google to turn over identifying information including any names, phone numbers, IP addresses and location metadata.
