The investigation to find the vandals who cut all those fiber-optic cables in the Bay Area is still ongoing, but Verizon has stepped up and sued 100 unnamed suspects for the crime. We don't have any updates on what kind of damages they're seeking, or what the motivation might have been for causing the massive outage on April 9th, though considering the giant $250,000 reward, Verizon is taking this very seriously.

About 100,000 customers were affected by the damage, which brought down internet, cell phone, and landline coverage. We'll keep you updated as we hear more. [SFGate]
