Spammer's appeal rejected by high court

Bob Egelko has this story with the above headline in the SF Chron.

The U.S. Supreme Court has rejected a challenge to California's antispam law, turning down an appeal by a Redwood City advertising company that was assessed $7,000 in damages for sending seven unsolicited commercial e-mails that failed to identify the company as the sender.

The court denied review Monday of Trancos Inc.'s claim that the California law contradicts the federal spam law. The state law is still being challenged in lower federal courts in another case, however, and its status remains unresolved.
The high court is a bit behind the times in terms of electronic filing, but in this case that might be a good thing.  The spammer might have filed 100,000 electronic copies of its cert. petition.
