Yahoo wins appeal of $2.7 billion suit in Mexican court

The 2011 breach-of-contract suit involved a listing service

An appeals court in Mexico has overturned an approximately US$2.7 billion judgment against Yahoo and Yahoo Mexico in a breach-of-contract suit concerning online directories.

Yahoo announced on Thursday it had won its appeal of the case in the Superior Court of Justice for the Federal District. The court reversed a November 2012 non-final ruling by the 49th Civil Court of Mexico, overturning all monetary awards against Yahoo and cutting down the award against Yahoo Mexico to $172,500. The plaintiffs, World Wide Directories and Ideas Interactivas, may appeal the decision.

The plaintiffs sued Yahoo in 2011, alleging breach of contract, breach of promise and lost profits in connection with a listing service.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
