Judge Dismisses First Case Under Utah's Anti-Spam Law
Terry Gillman filed the suit last July, charging that he received unsolicited e-mail from Sprint Communications, according to reports. Third District Judge Denise Lindberg ruled that Gillman had agreed to receive third-party promotional messages through his signing onto the Audio Galaxy Web site, which sold e-mail addresses to other parties, including Sprint.
Gillman received the Sprint e-mail two days after requesting on May 14, 2002, that he be removed from Audio Galaxy e-mail lists. Lindberg ruled that his attempt to remove himself from the lists was insufficient to void the pre-existing business relationship.
