Legal response to real abuse

The Tor website provides pretty good legal information and references in 
regard to DMCA complaints (to supposedly ease the communication with the 
ISP). I had to limit our exit policy for the US node anyway, so the only 
complaints my ISP is receiving now are worse cases, ie. actual abuse: 
Hacking, spamming, defacements, you name it. Today for example, an 
individual contacted my ISP about his (successfully) hacked email 
account using one of our Tor exit nodes.

I know that this is probably a hard question, but are there any 
paragraphs in US law I can quote to make my ISP feel more comfortable 
about that? And me? :)
