Bank Sues Customer/Victim of Cyberheist

PlainsCapital Bank v Hillary Machinery is a Web 2.0 lawsuit, unlike anything we have seen in the history of computer law.

Not only is it remarkable because the bank is suing the customer; it is remarkable because the small customer is exploiting web PR tactics as an asymmetrical weapon against a much more powerful adversary.   The  lawsuit is a case study in modern conflict and public relations.  It demonstrates the web as a populist political machine.
