Team Xecuter's Gary Bowser ordered to pay $10,000,000 fine in civil case

Early last month, Team Xecuter's Gary Bowser pleaded guilty to charges of trafficking in circumvention devices and conspiracy to circumvent technological measures, resulting in a $4.5 million fine, destruction of property relating to Team Xecuter, and possible jail time. That plea deal was for his federal lawsuit, which is separate to the civil case filed against him by Nintendo of America. The final judgement for that suit came down today, hitting him with another $10 million fine, and ordering a permanent injunction against him from reactivating the Team Xecuter website or utilizing the SX OS, Gateway3DS, or similar brands in any way.

JUSTICE!!!!
what an ironic thing to say with a signature like yours :rofl:, or let me guess you want all your consoles to be able to emulate nes and snes, right?

Nintendo is well within it's rights to do this, what i'd like to know is how can there be 2 seperate cases by nintendo, but one federal and one civil for what seems to be the same offense? i'm not that well versed in (american) law but it seems silly

i'm not sure, it seems kinda unfair to burden just the one guy when team xecuter ultimately was more people and all that, including resellers and customers and such.
Because he was the shipper. He took care of the logistics etc. He used O-P-A.biz to sell their inventory.

Alright, but what would've been the problem of making it into one case? As in all complaints / items done in 1 go? Or can some things only be done by federal and other things only by civil?
