Spamhaus Case: e360 Award Slashed to $27k

Venkat Balasubramani has the story over on Circle ID. Once upon a time, e360 was able to convince a judge that $11 million was accurately reflective of their actual losses. Spamhaus challenged, and David Lindhardt apparently wasn't up to that challenge, being slow to respond to discovery requests, providing wildly varying figured, etc. At the end of the day, the judge gave up and called e360's figures "unreliable." They claimed  many millions in damages, yet the company only seemed to take in $332,000. The pie was apparently a bit smaller than claimed, and when the judge sliced that pie, it sounds like he decided that e360 only deserved a twenty seven thousand dollar slice.

As Venkat puts it, $27,002 final judgment "doesn't sound like a particularly good outcome for the plaintiff." D'oh.
