Basher must pay $20mil for 50 posts defaming company and its CEO on internet financial chat boards. The court may have set a precedent for the huge size of the damage award ($20,000,000) against one basher on a financial board. It works out to $400,000 for each defamatory post. The court sent a very strong message to internet bashers of companies and mgmt.
The court brief is good reading. The basher's 50 posts copied and pasted are a lot like what you read at HUB. http://freepdfhosting.com/387a6d2074.pdf http://www.revolutionsmedical.com/media/press...etail=1214 http://finance.yahoo.com/news/20-million-awar...48480.html http://www.postandcourier.com/article/2010092.../309219966
