Claim lives and businesses destroyed

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Oakland, California and claims that the information Yahoo! provided to P.R.C. authorities resulted in the arrest and imprisonment of Li Zhi in 2003, in which Li was given an 8-year prison term.  Li, not a plaintiff in the suit, is still in prison and has served about half of his sentence.  The claims of the plaintiffs include violation of international law, torture and lengthy detention, intentional infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment, assault and unfair business practices.
