Taylorlautner -- JSYK
Township supervisor Tom DeRosa snapped a picture of Taylor for his teenage daughter and was reportedly scolded by Taylor's dad for doing so.
In retaliation, Tom threatened to tow the film crew's vehicles unless they paid a $500 fee and supposedly ordered police officers to use their cars to block the crew in. Not everyone on the force obeyed, so the township supervisor used cars from his own dealership to create the barrier.
The American Civil Liberties Union, who intervened in the case, turned over two IPs on Aug. 11 after an Allegheny County judge last month ruled that Forward Township Supervisor Thomas DeRosa was entitled to the information.
DeRosa has claimed he needs to know who posted the information for a defamation suit he is pursuing against two of them. DeRosa claims the comments, posted under the heading â€œFwd Twp. DeRosa (Equals) Corruption,â€ accuse him of spending township money on a car dealership he owns and of supporting a police chief candidate who will help his â€œcorruptâ€ schemes, among other insults. DeRosaâ€™s attorney did not return a call for comment in time for this story. Rose, the ACLU lawyer, said even though DeRosa had the IP addresses, it might take a while for him to learn the identity of the posters.
