Diebold says, "Uncle! We didn't mean it!"

Diebold has filed a court document asserting that it is withdrawing all its Cease-and-Desist letters and does not plan on filing any lawsuits --- not even the one they threatened against me. Of course, it is doing this in order to forestall the EFF/Stanford's lawsuit against it. Since the EFF and Stanford law clinic were filing suit in order to obtain an injunction preventing Diebold from threatening any more people with its bogus claims, Diebold is hoping that saying "we won't do it again" is enough to get the case dropped. Of course, we'd like the judge to issue a definitive ruling anyway, since I trust Diebold about as far as I can throw one of their voting machines. Or ATMs, for that matter.

Details on this from Lawrence Lessig, Ed Felten, and Joe Hall, who also points out how the memo contents have been used so far to reform California's election law.
