Fax.com Told To Stop Yet Again

from the yeah,-like-that'll-stop-them dept

You may remember that leading junk faxer Fax.com has been in some legal trouble over the past few years. They first were fined $5.38 million by the FCC who found it impossible to collect, despite announcing the fine multiple times and finally asking the FTC to help out (to no avail). Then, they tried to hide themselves by starting up a bunch of shell companies that claimed no association with Fax.com, but were obviously the same people. The company is also being sued for $2.2 trillion by Steve Kirsch, who argues they owe at least that much if they owe $500 per junk fax (as stipulated by the anti-junk-fax law). Now, the United States District Court of Southern California has put in place a temporary injunction telling Fax.com (and all its spinoff companies) to stop junk faxing as part of a $15 million lawsuit filed by California against the company. Obviously, given the company’s history, it seems unlikely they’ll pay much attention.
