Not when it comes to betraying private information. If the proper channels of investigation had been used, sure by all means track the asshat down and show him what's what. But to just hand it over to him because he's in a position of relative power? It's kind of sickening.

The official filing was posted below. http://www.illinoiscourts.gov/Opinions/SupremeCourt/2015/118000.pdf Looks like (i am not a lawyer) he went to court to get to the IP address from the website it was posted on, then went to court to get the identity from comcast, went through a whole load of legal loops up to the Illinois supreme court. Seems like all the proper channels were gone through.

Yep, that was some proper filing by the plaintiff. Good on him.
