Sleazy software development company sues employed developer for developing

It is apparently a good day for ridiculous lawsuits - a perl developer was sued by his employer for ... writing software; more specifically for accessing the source repository from home over ssh.
The details of the case involves the developer threating to blow the whistle on the employers sleazy practice of routinely using open relays on zombie machines to harvest web pages (thus circumventing attempts by website owners to combat harvesting attempts) - this according to the developer, obviously.
Sounds like nice people - unethical business practices and lawsuits against employees.
