My legalese is a bit rusty. Does that mean E360 is awarded damages of three dollars but must cover Spamhaus's court costs for the appeal?

Your legalese is *not* that rusty. :) That's exactly what it means.

You can see it neatly summarized in the wiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Spamhaus_Project#e360_Lawsuit

1. $11,715,000 in damages awarded to E360
2. E360 tried to force ICANN to take Spamhaus domain down. ICANN refused, the court agreed with ICANN
3. U.S. federal Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit overturned the default judgement and sent the case back to the district court.
4. E360 goes bankrupt, too many legal costs
5. $11,715,000 in damages reduced to $27,000 +$1 + $1
6. $27,002 reduced to $1 + $1 + $1 = $3 and E360 faced with the legal costs

Game set and match to Spamhaus.

Aren't they the scumbags that named Shiksaa as a codefendant just because she is American, so they wouldn't have to sue in a loser-pays court system outside the US?
