Judge Awards Facebook $711 Million in Damages in Spam King Case


Earlier this year, we first covered the news that Facebook had filed a federal lawsuit against famed “Spam King” Sanford Wallace for crimes under the CAN-SPAM Act, Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and the California Anti-Phishing Act. Today, Facebook says the company won the case and was awarded $711 million in damages, the second largest CAN-SPAM judgment only to Facebook’s $873 million judgment against Adam Guerbuez and Atlantis Blue Capital last November.

“While we don’t expect to quickly collect the full amount, we’ll work hard to get everything we can,” a Facebook spokesperson said.
