Petite Anglaise got 'dooced' and sues
Petite Anglaise, fellow blogger and double-whammy style winner of our very own 2006 Satin Pajama Awards in the categories Best Expat Weblog and Best Personal Weblog was fired from her job because of her blogging activities, or 'dooced' in weblog lingo. Her plight is receiving major news coverage, as you will see below the fold.
Catherine Sanderson, as we now know her true name to be, won't be leaving her job without putting up a legal fight first. I'll let the media tell the rest of the story.
Unmarried mother Catherine Sanderson -- "La Petite Anglaise" to 3,000 regular readers of her Internet diary -- is launching legal action in France, claiming unfair dismissal against accountancy firm Dixon Wilson, British media reports say.
From The Telegraph:
But partners at the leading British accountancy firm Dixon Wilson alleged that she made herself and therefore the firm identifiable by including her own photograph on the weblog. They also complained that she used office time to work on it.
the story is commented on the French "judicial" blog
Journal d'un avocat AKA Maître Eolas.

Dixon Wilson has better make up before they completely ruin their image
