A University of Delaware student is defending her honor in court.

The student wants to know who's been gossiping about her sex life online.

She's suing to find out the identity of those who've made claims about her sexual history.

The student is also asking for damages for -- quote -- "vulgar, scurrilous and false" statements about her.

The student, who's from New Jersey, isn't named in the court documents.

She's identified only as Jane Doe.

A federal judge has ruled she doesn't have to reveal her real name, which could subject her to additional humiliation.
