Almost the new year and the Copyright Trolls are getting no breaks. ;( Today I looked at the docket for 1:12-cv-00656, Sunlust Pictures, LLC v. Cisa (CO), and found a little new years surprise – Document 99.
Troll Anderson and the bright minds at Prenda Law Inc., (AKA: Anti-Piracy Law Group) decided to dismiss the case against Cisa. DismissedWOP_00656(CO)
Didn’t even bother to address the issue of violating the judge’s order in not contacting the joint tortfeasors. My prior Cisa case post. What a tool. I don’t know if the judge will do anything, but as it is now on record, it is much harder to hide. I’m sure Prenda has violated this order in locations other than VA, so it may still come to haunt them. Even if this case is closed, it isn’t going to be pretty trying to explain to a new judge why they violated another court’s order, dismissed it outright, and then went to a new court.
As they didn’t go for a default judgement against Mr. Cisa, I bet Prenda is still going to try to pressure the remaining joint tortfeasors in other jurisdictions. They had done their due diligence and it was ripe for a default. If you were part of this case, please contact me if you receive any communication from the Trolls. Any spin-off cases are ripe for more torpedos.
Happy New Year
