Quote: "Public disclosure and dissemination of the victim loss letters was clearly designed to cause additional injury to the victims of defendant's conduct or to cause such victims embarrassment or ridicule." - 5/6/99, from a motion filed by the prosecution in the Kevin Mitnick case after letters obtained by 2600 were made public - these letters claimed that Mitnick, simply by looking at some source code, managed to cost cellular phone companies several hundred million dollars, a huge figure that was never reported to the companies' stockholders, as is required by law.
