Blogospheric Rubbernecking – 2014 Blackmail Edition

The Brian Leiter-Paul Campos feud continues into the New Year.  The latest: Campos is threatening to disclose “potentially very embarrassing personal information” about Leiter should the latter disclose the personal identity of “Dybbuk,” the pseudonym of a lawyer/”scamblogger” accused of harassing another law professor in blog posts and comments.  Could this constitute blackmail?  I’ll leave that to the crimlaw folks.
