getting into bed with spammers:

According to court documents, an attorney for Quicken Loans fingered New 
York City-based Azoogle (also at Azoogleleads.com):
> Amy Bishop, counsel for Quicken, declares under oath, I told Mr. [Jason] Singleton [counsel for Plaintiff,] words to the effect that "it is understood that the release of this information to you is conditioned upon you releasing Quicken Loans." Mr. Singleton agreed to release Quicken Loans in exchange for the information. Mr. Singleton did not tell me that he had filed a lawsuit against Quicken Loans two days earlier, but instead asked me to cooperate by providing the information I had. Relying on the release, I then explained to Mr. Singleton that Quicken Loans received the lead from its affiliate, Azoogle.
