It's not clear in the article, but I assume the company is merely being compelled to provide whatever information it has so that the individual responsible can be identified. In order to secure damages from the company, I think Zoeller would have to prove culpability. As has been pointed out, the IP address could be simply an open WiFi connection, in which case, culpability certainly could not be proven.
Neverthless, the company should cooperate to the best of its ability.
