Description
Edward Falk operates a spam watchdog website. On his website, Falk indicated that Jerry Reynolds was associated with a number of spamming companies and pornographic websites. Falk also allegedly stated that Reynolds engaged in a pyramid scam and other illegal or dishonest behavior on the internet. Reynolds filed suit anonymously, claiming that the statements on Falk's website were defamatory and constituted intentional interference with prospective business advantage and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The North Dakota court dismissed the case for lack of personal jurisdiction over Falk, who is a California resident.
