Ratner Goes to Court to Stop Phony Emails

Bruce Ratner is suing someone--he just doesn't know who yet--because that someone has been falsely emailing people in his name. Ratner claims critics of his planned Nets arena, "John Does #1 through #10" in the suit, have been sending out emails suggesting that he is abandoning a Brooklyn brewer. The brewer, subject of a critics' boycott, is a big supporter of the arena and already sells beer at Continental Airlines Arena. Ratner wants $150,000. The critics deny any role in the scam.
