NBA Baller Dwyane Wade Sues Computer Hackers

Someone has been keeping tabs on Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade's personal life. The NBA baller claims someone intentionally, methodically and persistently hacked into his computer, gaining access to years' worth of private information and correspondences, and used that information to threaten people. Now he's suing. According to documents obtained by the folks over at Courthouse News, Dwayne filed a lawsuit against John Does 1-50 in Tyler, Texas Federal Court on July 14. He filed a similar complaint in Beaumont Federal Court. Dwyane claims the hacker/s accessed his personal e-mail accounts (one of which is d3_flash@yahoo.com) and Twitter account from January 1, 2007 to June 2011. He says the hacker/s changed passwords to get access to more information from his personal computer, including messages to and from his attorneys, financial associates and advisers, friends and family, including his two small children -- and correspondences between him and his crazy ex-wife, Siohvaughn Wade. We know what you're think -- and it's the same thing we were wondering -- is Siohvaughn behind this hacking? (Or, maybe it was Shaquille O'Neal?) That will come out in trial, but at this time, she is not a defendant in the case. In the lawsuit, Dwayne says the hacker/s used the information they stole from his accounts to threaten people and fraudulently correspond with third parties "using vulgar information purporting to be Mr. Wade" and using the stolen information to obtain private documents from third parties. According to the suit, an e-mail registered to a Patrick Worthen, who lives in Tyler, Texas, was linked to Dwyane's account. The basketball star is suing for punitive damages and asked the court for a protective injunction.
