Penkava v. Yahoo: dismissed

Carson Penkava, who was suing Yahoo! under California wiretapping laws, filed for dismissal with prejudice at the end of November. No reasons were given.

Plaintiff hereby voluntarily dismisses the litigation with prejudice as to his individual claims and without prejudice as to the potential claims of any absent putative class members. The rights of absent putative class members will not be prejudiced by the dismissal of the Plaintiff’s claim because no class has been certified in this litigation.

I talked about this case previously (here, here, and here) and I don’t have much more to say now. I thought it was pretty unlikely that there was an actual violation going on here. Now I guess we have to wait for another case to see if this is true.

  • Ongoing Yahoo delays

    I've been hearing from folks over the last few days that they're seeing an uptick in deferrals from Yahoo! The deferrals are not uniform. ESPs report they're seeing some, but not all, customers affected. Other ESPs aren't seeing any changes. It's not just you. But it would be very worthwhile to dig into engagement and other stats. It's possible this is a new normal at Yahoo! and they're tightening filters to catch mail that doesn't fit their standards but was previously difficult to filter.No Comments
