BALTIMORE - While acknowledging that the Federal Trade Commission had "compile(d) a substantial and impressive amount of evidence" in its case against a former employee of a firm accused of distributing "scareware" via the Internet, a Maryland federal judge on June 11 held that genuine issues of material fact exist that preclude disposing of the case via summary judgment (Federal Trade Commission v. Kristy Ross, individually and as an officer of Innovative Marketing Inc., No. 08-cv-3233, D. Md.; 2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 80319).
