According to the articles almost all of the defamatory stuff originated from the same few IPs, one of which was his home IP.

Oh dear, guess that's why you shouldn't take it too far with lolcows with a shitload of money. Why sue that specific guy tho when the whole thread is in on it?

lmao that CS professor's career and job searching is toast now (not that he'll be hired anyway with the face of a pedophile).

Our thread on Ashu Solo started in April 2017, only a month before the court order was issued. The legal action against Prasad had been underway since February 2013.

Ashu Solo actually filed a motion to prevent details relating to the legal action being published online. One of his grounds was that publication would likely lead to Prasad losing his job and being unable to obtain further employment, and therefore unable to pay the judgement.

What the fuck in any of this is worth 2.5 mil?

Some bullshit paper mill academic press that publishes papers other more legitimate ones won't touch?
That's actually the other really confusing part about all of this, because in defamation suits not only do you have to actually prove willful intent as far as spreading lies... you have to prove the damages. It doesn't really work like it does in most civil suits where you can come up with all sorts of pie in the sky emotional damages. To the point where, even in the rare instances which defamation suits actually do manage to "win"... they often don't get much... or sometimes anything...

Usually there's only like one major case per year where there's actually a substantial payout and usually it involves some incredibly depraved case of corporate level dick licking to screw someone over. And even then I don't think anyone has ever even broken the 5 mill mark.

Malice would have been easy to establish. Prasad created a whole heap of aliases and even websites to publish his accusations. The plaintiffs cancelled at least one conference and refunded money out of pocket. I haven't looked for other court documents to see exactly how damages were calculated, but the media article mentions a substantial punitive damages award as well as a substantial fees award (those two add up to over half the total award). As two individuals plus a company have had their reputation damaged, the base award doesn't seem excessive.

Edit : Leon County Court website won't load at the moment so I can't find the original complaint. I did check the Supreme Court docket, though, and the court denied Ashu Solo's motion to prohibit publication of case details online.

On another note, there's something pathetic about this dude when you picture a 30-40 something year old giggling while using 90 aliases for 1 lolcow at a county library computer.

If it didn't say he was a CS professor I would've assumed this was some unemployed a-log neckbeard.

I think it requires some level of extreme anger/animosity to put in that kind of effort just for one target, so in any event I doubt he was giggling at all. Also no surprise he's a professor, educators are quite often the most unhinged people around. Hence the saying about how those who can't do... teach.

I dunno, what this cow is doing is eerily similar to what Kiwis do; keep close tabs on some dumbass, find all of their doxes and even address, archive the crap out of everything they post, find a blog post they made in 2002. How are we any different (other than the obviously deranged 90 aliases thing)?

This guy isn't keeping tabs. He's falsifying content. He's touching some poop.
