Complaint dropped against DDoS mafia
Federal authorities in Los Angeles have dismissed a criminal complaint filed last August against four men accused of performing DDoS attacks for hire.
On January 18, a magistrate judge for the Central District of California granted a prosecution motion to dismiss without prejudice the complaint against Paul Garrett Ashley, the operator of Creative Internet Techniques (CIT), also known as FooNet, and three alleged accomplices, Jonathan David Hall, Joshua James Schichtel, and Richard Roby. (The complaint against a fourth man, Lee Graham Walker of the United Kingdom, was not dismissed and is still pending, according to authorities.)
