More legal woes for E360

According to the Pacer archives, E360 has become caught up in another lawsuit. This time, they're being sued by John W. Ferron, of Ferron & Associates. In short, Ferron is suing E360 and its owner Dave Linhardt under the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act.

Ferron alleges that E360/Linhardt sent multiple emails advertising discount luxury goods which are actually counterfeit products. Ferron is asking for $200 per fraudulent email (total around $120,000) plus legal fees

E360/Linhardt has moved to dismiss based on jurisdiction. I'm not familiar with Ohio's long-arm statutes, but if they're anything like North Dakota's — with which I have some familiarity — E360/Linhardt is facing an uphill battle on this one.

If there is interest, I will make copies of the court documents available here, assuming SpamSuite doesn't pick them up.

Update: Docs are now online at Spamsuite.
