Love It!

A judge has ordered a U.S. lawyer who defended two Russians accused of operating a large botnet to pay Google's legal fees. It just goes to show there are a few good judges out there. 

The defendants, who initially pursued a strategy of counter suing Google for interfering in their sprawling cybercrime business, later brazenly offered to dismantle the botnet in exchange for payment from Google. The judge in the case was not amused, found for the plaintiff, and ordered the defendants and their U.S. attorney to pay Google’s legal fees.

I hope every lawyer and judges hears about this case. Lawyers do not have legal immunity to crimes they commit when they are representing a client. We cannot continue to turn a blind eye to such actions.
