    A federal appeals court in Virginia has ruled against 28 defendants who ignored a lawsuit over a sex tape they falsely claimed featured Miss West Virginia 2003.

    Alison Williams won a $7.2 million verdict against nine internet companies and individuals who promoted the video in 2009.

    The case also involved 28 other defendants who did not respond to the complaint.

    Last week, a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond ruled that a default judgment should be entered against them, too.

    The court said the companies and individual ignored the lawsuit at their own peril.
