I hate frivolous lawsuits. A major drawback to the US legal system if you ask me. I mean, this guy is suing because he felt anxious that someone complained that he had given them terrible service! Well, if he had done a good job, it wouldn't have been an issue. I get nervous if I make a mistake at work, but that doesn't mean I sue my boss!

This lawsuit is totally stupid.. It is as if freedom of speech never happened! I would turn around and sue the you.S. government for all the embarassment and trouble they caused by not allowing my freedom of speech. Grrr...

@-McP, your title should be "Read - comment at your own risk" Wink

I followed the hole case when it happened. Aquatic Plant List's ListMom (who were also sued) where also the ListMom of another Aquarium list, and we discussed the issue extensively there. Soon she changed the name of the list and the host service, so these threads are lost, but her list is still alive and running. Smile

APD is still an active mailing list. Infact I'm 2000-3000 mails behind @ least. It's great if your into plants. MANY years of experince and knowledge there. Last I heard all of the lawsuits were not done and still accepting donations for the general defense fund. A few members dontate auction profits to the fund.

This website has more information about the law suit. A fund was set up to support the defendants against Novak. On this website, the attorney lists lots of information on all the lawsuits filed by Novak, and their current status.

The good news is, the lawsuits do not seem to have been very profitable for Mr. Novak.
