An internet service provider (ISP) has been ordered to pay a $807,000 fee after a judge ruled that the spam case the company filed was “groundless.” Asis Internet Services has filed over twenty lawsuits alleging spam attacks by users.

Earlier this month, the company won $2.6 million in a separate spam lawsuit. In the most recent case, the judge ruled that Asis kept pursuing the case without adequate evidence against the defendant.

“Rather, it is apparent that Asis sued Azoogle based on little more than speculation that there might be a connection between those emails and Azoogle,” the judge wrote in the decision, which was released late last week. “Asis then continued to litigate even as its discovery efforts turned up no evidence in support of its claims against Azoogle. Having initiated over 20 similar actions, and sued over 20 defendants in this action alone, an award of attorneys’ fees here is necessary to deter Asis and other plaintiffs hoping to profit under the Can-Spam Act from casting such a wide net.”
