Massachusetts settles first state CAN-SPAM lawsuit

CNet reports that Massachusetts has settled its lawsuit against DC Enterprises and its principal owner, William Carson of Florida. This was the first suit brought by a state under the CAN-SPAM Act (pdf). According to CNet, the settlement calls for a $25,000 payment and a promise not to violate CAN-SPAM (or Massachusetts' mortgage-broker and advertising laws) in the future.

Contrary to public sentiment, the state does not appear to have requested that the alleged spammer be drawn and quartered.
