Spamhaus turns blind eye to U.S. court ruling


A prominent spam research organization based in London will ignore a US$11.7 million judgment against it by a U.S. federal judge since it can't be enforced in the U.K.

Steven Linford, chief executive officer of the Spamhaus Project, said Friday the lawsuit was filed by David Linhardt, whose e-mail messages that advertised bargain goods were considered spam by his organization. The judgment was handed down on Wednesday in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Illinois.
