Members of Anonymous have published e-mails from the law firm representing a U.S. Marine accused of killing 24 Iraqi civilians.

"The hacktivists claim to have made off with a 2.6GB email spool after breaking into the systems of Puckett Faraj, the law firm that represents Frank Wuterich, 31, the Marine staff sergeant at one point accused of manslaughter over events in Haditha, Iraq," writes The Register's John Leyden. "A total of 24 Iraqi non-combatants, including women and children, were killed in Haditha in November 2005."

"The emails, released as a torrent and with extracts published on Pastebin, include transcripts of testimony, evidence from the trial and defence donation records," Leyden writes.
