When last we saw the Holomaxx case, in which a bulk mailer in Pennsylvania sued Microsoft and Yahoo in separate cases for not delivering their mail on the legally absurd theory that Microsoft and Yahoo are required to deliver mail from random spammers who claim to be CAN SPAM compliant, the judge threw the case out, but gave them the option to amend their complaint and try again.
They've refiled against Yahoo, with the main difference being that they added out of context quotations from a MAAWG document that doesn't say what Holomaxx wishes that it said. At this point, the main question is how much more of his time the judge will allow them to waste before he shuts them down for good.
Word to the Wise has a more detailed analysis and a link to the amended complaint.
