Yelp has handed over account information for a previously anonymous account, named “Linda G,” to a Massachusetts jeweler seeking to sue the user.

The company was ordered by a municipal court judge to hand over the user’s name and address after Boston-based Pageo Jewelry provided documentation to Yelp and to the court indicating that the user’s review may be false.
