No Truce in the Spam Wars

Wired News reports No Truce in the Spam Wars. In April, filed a lawsuit against anti-spam activists. The complaint included counts of libel, invasion of privacy, business interference among other charges. After the defendants filed a motion for summary judgment, filed a notice of voluntary dismissal.

rather than welcoming the seeming surrender by (EMA), the defendants’ attorney Pete Wellborn said the case should go on. According to Wellborn, he wants to send a message to junk e-mailers who launch legal attacks: Don’t start what you can’t finish.
“We still want the court to decide this suit on its merits,” Wellborn said on Monday. “This is just a desperate attempt by the plaintiffs to escape a frivolous lawsuit without paying the defendants’ legal fees, as justice demands,” he said.
