Memphis Police Director Larry Godwin and the city of Memphis have filed a lawsuit to find out who operates a blog that is harshly critical of Godwin and the police department.

However, they have not sued the bloggers, but they have sued AOL for the names and all information related to an email address that is linked to the blog.

The blog, MPD Enforcer 2.0, is operated under an alias of Dirk Diggler – a porn star in “Boogie Nights” – say that their site provides important information to the officers and to the citizens of Memphis. However, it is unknown if the city wants to shut down the site or just want it to stop leaks that might affect investigations.

Meanwhile, the site has spoken to their attorneys and has posted the subpoena that it has been given to AOL.

“In what could be a landmark case of privacy and the 1st Amendment, GODwin has illegally used his position and the City of Memphis as a ram to ruin the Constitution of the United States!” the bloger wrote on the site.

“Some members of the Enforcer 2.0 have contacted their attorneys and we are in the process of filing a lawsuit against Larry and the City of Memphis. What’s wrong Larry? The truth hurt?”
