SAN FRANCISCO – A website is suing a competitor over allegations it spammed users for information for its own website.

Craigslist Inc. filed a complaint on April 8 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California against Radpad Inc. and Does 1-10, citing breach of contract, copyright infringement, violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act and other counts.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it sustained damages to its business as a result of misleading actions done to its users by the defendant. The plaintiff holds Radpad Inc. and Does 1-10 responsible because the defendants allegedly breached the plaintiff's terms of use from using plaintiff's website when it accessed users' information to send misleading, unsolicited spam postings to plaintiff's users' emails and then reposting the information on its website.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks injunction enjoining and retraining the defendant from accessing plaintiff's website and obtaining user information for its own purpose, all damages plus interest, all legal fees and any other relief as this court deems just. It is represented by Perry J. Viscounty, Jennifer L. Barry and Andrew Gass of Latham & Watkins LLP in Menlo Park, San Diego and San Francisco.
