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.

  • AOL compromise

    Lots of reports today of a security problem at AOL where accounts are sending spam, or are being spoofed in spam runs or something. Details are hazy, but there seems to be quite a bit of noise surrounding this incident. AOL hasn't provided any information as of yet as to what is going on.4 Comments

  • AOL problems

    Lots of people are reporting ongoing (RTR:GE) messages from AOL today.  This indicates the AOL mail servers are having problems and can't accept mail. This has nothing to do with spam, filtering or malicious email. This is simply their servers aren't functioning as well as they should be and so AOL can't accept all the mail thrown at them. These types of blocks resolve themselves. 1 Comment
