eldavojohn writes “TV pitchman Kevin Trudeau was sentenced to 30 days in jail because he urged his fans and followers to spam a judge. Apparently the judge (who was deluged with emails) decided that this was an act of contempt of court on the court’s ‘virtual presence’ since nothing happened while the court was in session in regards to Trudeau’s courtroom behavior. US Marshals are now trudging through those emails to decide if any are threatening.”
