Washington Man Slams Spammers For $250,000

Incensed at the volume of junk e-mail he got, a determined Redmond man last week won a record $250,000 judgment against two Ohio residents who broke a Washington law by deluging him with spam.

Nigel Featherston, 57, spent $10,000 to hire an attorney and a private investigator in his quest against Dayton, Ohio, residents Linda Lightfoot and Charles Childs and their varied corporate personas: Universal Direct, Mega Direct, Mega Success and Ultra Trim 2002.

I hope he's able to collect. From seattlepi.com here. (via The Obscure Store)
