Odd that the case did not unleash a torrent of similar outlandish claims. Why are a myriad of US lawyers not swarming round this honeypot? Anyone with a website is now exposed to this greenmail. Surely it is the subject of an appeal to the USA Supreme Court or whatever?
Luckly I live in the UK and am not subject to lunatic American jurisdictions. Although our own judges are often crazy enough as well where "human rights" (meaning the rights of criminals, terrorists, scoundrels, illegal immigrants, asylum seekers and so on) are involved. Somehow the human rights of ordinary, decent, law-abiding people to be protected against criminals etc. are never taken into account.
