A Nevada-based company accused of sending out millions of unsolicited e-mails touting mortgage deals has been ordered to pay $11.6 million to Atlanta-based EarthLink Inc. The total came from U.S. District Court Judge Timothy C. Batten Sr.’s Aug. 31 order awarding treble damages arising from a 2004 case filed by the Internet service provider against a company called KSTM LLC.

Whether EarthLink is able to recover anything is another matter; KSTM never answered the complaint, and no defense counsel ever appeared in court. A search of the Nevada Secretary of State’s Web site showed no such company listed.
