A federal judge in Connecticut has ruled that an attorney-plaintiff, who filed a lawsuit identifying herself as “Jane Doe,” cannot pursue the litigation without revealing her identity.

U.S. District Judge Vanessa Bryant of the District of Connecticut said she was “personally sympathetic” to the attorney’s concerns, but found Jane Doe had failed to make a compelling case for anonymity under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Bryant gave the plaintiff three weeks to identify herself in court documents.
