MetNews : Court of Appeal Finds Anti-Spam Statute Inapplicable

An anti-spam statute which bars the sending of unsolicited email containing falsehoods does not apply where the sender is not hawking goods or services, the Court of Appeal for this district ruled yesterday

The decision by Div. Five affirms the decision of Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michelle Rosenblatt who awarded summary judgment to the defendants, Anil Vazirani and his company, Vazirani & Associates Financial, LLC. The opinion is not certified for publication.


The defendants were sued by Aviva USA Corporation and others based on a torrent of email Vazirani caused to be sent out by marketing companies disparaging Aviva, an insurance provider. Vazirani, an independent agent, was miffed over having been dropped by Aviva as a seller of its policies.

In February of 2011, and again on March 1 of that year, about 500,000 email went to persons in the life insurance and annuity industry and about 50,000 of the electronic messages were sent to stockbrokers

  • Yet Another Unlicensed Contractor Debacle 2017/07/10
    This story is late in publishing because the AOC (ahem, the judicial council) spent months drawing out our requests for information on a simple inquiry they should have been able to deliver on the same day it was received because what scant information they did provide was readily available to them. But they dragged out […]
  • Another Clifford Ham boondoggle in San Diego 2017/04/19
    More false promises of tunnels reaching out from jails to courthouses. Don’t say we didn’t tell you so because we’ve stated many times that ALL tunnel promises are false promises made to win local support of the projects and penciled out upon approval. What we find most disturbing is that Clifford Ham has a track […]
  • Writing our obit is a bit premature… 2017/04/06
    Welcome to 2017! Yeah, we know, a bit of time has passed since we’ve been hyperactive here. We’ve been a bit busy frying other fish.  If you consider yourself a progressive, you’ve already read and possibly even recognized our work elsewhere. We will be continuing those projects and check in here as not to neglect […]
  • Welcome to the first business day of our reinvigorated 10 year run! 2017/01/02
    Thanks to the sheer incompetence of Judicial Council staff leadership, we’re going to be spending the next ten years nipping at their heels. Last week, the San Francisco trial court ruled that the Jacobs entities maintained their contractors license and that the 22.7 million that the Judicial Council should have been able to recover is […]

The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows […]
