Law 360 reported in “Kraft Dodges $600 million email spam suit” that a Maryland federal judge dismissed a $600 million suit against Kraft Foods Group Inc. and other defendants over alleged spam emails.

In what Law 360 described as a “scathing” opinion, Judge Messitte adopted Kraft’s argument that the plaintiff did not have standing to bring suit under either the Maryland or California laws because it was not a bona fide internet service provider and that the plaintiff has shown no injury.
