Couple Sues Over Internet Glitch at Kansas Farmhouse

KSAL StaffAugust 9, 2016

A couple who rented a Kansas farmhouse is suing a company over an internet glitch that brought them numerous legal problems.

The glitch put the coordinates for the center of the U.S. in the front yard of James and Theresa Arnold near Potwin. The farmhouse became the default location for any website owner that didn’t have a specific IP address.

The Arnolds allege in a lawsuit filed Monday that glitch meant more than 600 million IP addresses became associated with the farmhouse. That led to them being accused over the years of internet-based crimes such as computer fraud and tax fraud, as well as making pornographic films.

The Wichita Eagle reports the couple is suing MaxMind, which they say is responsible.

The lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $75,000.
