Phil Mickelson has filed a lawsuit against an Internet service provider in Canada to learn the identity of a person who has been posting ''vexatious statements'' that the four-time major champion says is a deliberate attack on his reputation. In his lawsuit against Videotron S.E.N.C in Quebec Superior Court, Mickelson cited comments posted on Yahoo! Sports from Nov. 11 to Nov. 12, in which one or more persons under the pseudonyms ''Fogroller'' and ''Longtitude'' make statements that allege, among other things, that Mickelson's wife had an affair and that he fathered an illegitimate child. Mickelson says he is a victim of defamation. He is asking the court to force Videotron to identify the person so Mickelson can ''stop the dissemination of false and wrongful statements ... and obtain reparation for the prejudice already suffered.'' The motion was filed in Montreal on Jan. 25.
