Internet Security Threat Report 2014

A Sacramento judge has the final say today whether or not, Ken Hamidi, organiser of a group complaining against Intel employment practices, and a former employee of the corporation, was guilty of delivering spammed emails to the behemoth's 65,000 employees. According to a report on the FaceIntel site, a reversal of the judgement made last Friday is highly unlikely. Intel, showing egregious confidence, had moved for a summary judgement to prevent Hamidi, a long-standing anti-Intel litigant, from going to trial on the issue. Hamidi had argued that he, and the people he represented, could not present the organisation's course properly without a proper trial. Judge John Lewis appeared to agree last Friday. But today, Chipzilla will deliver an oral argument against Hamidi and FaceIntel arguing a summary judgement should be delivered. The ways of American Justice are closed to the outside world and so we await the verdict. ®
