Courts - New Jersey: "Judge Orders Newspaper to ID Commenter re Manslaughter Case Against Former ‘Melrose Place’ Actress"

ABA Journal blog has this March 30th entry that begins:

A judge in New Jersey yesterday ordered the Newark Star-Ledger to identify an anonymous commenter who said he witnessed a fatal car crash that resulted in an aggravated manslaughter charge against actress Amy Locane-Bovenizer, 39, who starred in the original Melrose Place television series.

The comment by the claimed witness said authorities were "lying about the facts" in the Somerset County Superior Court case, the Associated Press reported.

It isn't clear whether the newspaper may be considering an appeal.
