Quarter-million dollar judgment awarded against the most hated man on the internet.

Marc Randazza just pwned Hunter Moore aka  “The Most Hated Man on the Internet.”

Hunter Moore is a notorious cyber-bully and the founder of IsAnyoneUp.com, a revenge-porn website.   (Revenge-porn  sites, for those unfamiliar, are sites that allow slighted lovers to submit and upload naked photos of their exes to humiliate them).   IsAnyoneUp.com is now defunct, but according to recent interviews, Moore plans to start a new site that takes revenge-porn to a new and “scary as shit” level — a site that not only posts naked photos of people without their permission but also posts their addresses.   As Moore recently explained to BetaBeat“We’re gonna introduce the mapping stuff so you can stalk people.”  Terrific.

Outside of his revenge-porn business, Mr. Moore also takes time to defame individuals, like James McGibney, the founder of Bullyville.com.  McGibney is the one who convinced Moore to shut down his now infamous “Isanyoneup.com” revenge porn website for a nominal fee.   But Moore then  turned his attention to McGibney, going on an online rampage and falsely accusing McGibney of  possessing child pornography and engaging in child abuse.  

A defamation suit is really the only recourse for the victim of this kind of attack.  In an effort to take down Moore,  Marc Randazza –who typically defends defamation cases — took on McGibney’s defamation claim.

Randazza proved Moore’s statements about McGibney were false, and also showed that his client had suffered $250,000 in damages.  Mr. McGibney may never really be able to undo the damage to his reputation by Mr. Moore’s statements, but this judgment should make it less likely that the statements will be repeated.

  1. Hunter Moore seems like a piece of work. I am glad to see Marc Randazza taking these cases. I would guess that Hunter Moore doesn’t feel the same way.
