We're just innocent techies, say accused spammers

Thursday, 11 March 2004, 2:32 AM EST

Lawyers for a Florida firm accused of inundating AOL users with spam have hit back with a motion seeking to dismiss the lawsuit.

According to dismissal papers filed yesterday, AOL's lawsuit against Connor Miller Software in Orlando federal court is "essentially the same" as a case "dismissed" by a Virginia judge last December.

The defendants' lawyer, Seth Berenzweig of law firm Albo & Oblon, says that Judge Claude Hilton of Virginia "concluded the technicians never sent any emails, or directed any activity to AOL's computers".

AOL retorts that the Virginia court simply refused jurisdiction in the case, hence its decision to file suit against Connor Miller Software and its directors in their home state last month.
