Privacy and blogs: Is blogging about consensual sex an invasion of privacy?

Findlaw is carrying a very thorough discussion of the legal issues surrounding an invasion of privacy lawsuit brought by Robert Steinbuch after his relationship with "the Washingtonienne" (aka Jessica Cutler) was featured on her notorious blog. He is suing her for public revelation of private facts. The article, FindLaw's Writ - Hilden: Are Accounts of Consensual Sex a Violation of Privacy Rights? The Lawsuit Against the Blogger "Washingtonienne" by Julie Hilden, also contains links to the pleadings.

Thanks to the Tech Law Advisor for the pointer in his Blawg Review #12 (and also thanks for the pointer to this blog, referring to the lawyer ketchup e-mail incident).
