This was a pretty interesting case. It was brought to my attention thanks to Justin Kwong over at Virtual Navigator. His blog has a fantastic blog that always has great articles and thoughtful insight. Anyone who loves virtual law and everything it touches should be subscribed to that blog. Here is his review of the case.
