Man in webcam suicide case seeks to shield name

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — The man who prosecutors say was captured by a webcam in an intimate encounter with a Rutgers student who later committed suicide has “substantial fear” his privacy will be invaded.

The man, known only as M.B., has asked a judge to reverse his order to turn his name over to attorneys representing Tyler Clementi’s roommate.

M.B. told the judge in a written statement he fears his name will leak out.

The judge ruled that prosecutors must disclose the name to Dharun Ravi. Ravi is accused of bias intimidation and other charges.

Clementi committed suicide days after the alleged webcam-spying incident, triggering a national conversation about bullying of young gays.

M.B.’s attorney, Richard Pompelio, told The Star-Ledger of Newark the intense media interest in Clementi’s death is one reason why M.B. doesn’t want his identity revealed.
