Dave Q. Lintard writes with a link to The Register's coverage of a suit
against the spammer that sued Spamhaus. e360 Insight, as the company is known,
is accused of using a botnet and compromised headers to get their
'advertising' into the mailboxes of the claimant. These are also the folks
that tried to get the Illinois courts to suspend SpamHaus's domain
registration when they wouldn't play by e 360's rules. 'e360 Insight sued
Spamhaus after the anti-spam organisation blacklisted its domains over alleged
spamming. In a default ruling made by an Illinois court in September 2006,
Spamhaus was ordered to pay $11.7m in compensation to e360 Insight, pull the
organisation's listing, and post a notice stating that it was wrong to say
e360 Insight was involved in sending junk mail. UK-based Spamhaus did not
defend the case and the ruling was made in its absence.'
