Lori Drew

You may recall the mom who posed as a teenage boy on myspace and taunted 13-year-old Megan Meier to suicide. She's on trial for something like "accessing protected computers without authorization"--essentially a terms of service violation, akin to defrauding myspace.

That's all prelude to this, the best single-sentence assessment of the case I've heard so far, by commenter Bill Poser at Volokh.

The correct outcome of this case will be acquittal followed by Ms. Drew being struck by lightning as she leaves the courthouse.
