A New York bankruptcy judge has dismissed attorney Robert Steinbuch's claims that an adversary -- a lawyer for an ex-congressional staffer who described her sexual activities in a notorious blog -- improperly used metadata to trace the authorship of an electronic filing. Steinbuch is seeking a determination that claims underlying his prior filings against debtor and "Washingtonienne" blogger Jessica Cutler are nondischargeable due to her "malicious injury" of Steinbuch, who claims that Cutler's blog invaded his privacy.
