Hypertouch, Inc. v. ValueClink, Inc. (Cal. Ct. App. - Jan. 18, 2011)

Who to root for?  Entities who spam deceptive e-mail messages ("Free Gift If You Click Here!") and those that employ them, or someone suing them?  So close.  Especially when the former says that California's statutes are powerless to stop such misconduct because they're preempted.

The trial court sides with the defendants.  The Court of Appeal reverses.

And the (happy) crowd goes wild.

Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of folks.
