Well this week has seen many interesting things occur. Sophisticatedjanedoe passed this wonderful document from the Virginia cases filed by the Troll D. Wayne O’Bryan (K-Beech, Inc., v. Does 1-85, case # 3:11-cv-00469-JAG, Eastern District of Virginia & Patrick Collins v. Does 1-58, case # 3:11-cv-00531-JAG, Eastern District of Virginia). DieTrollDie Post.
These VA cases were the first ones I filed declarations to refute Plaintiff’s memorandums. I have since terms my declarations as “DTD Torpedos.” I have had another Torpedo filed in an Arizona case, and I just fired a new one on a yet to be identified target case ;).
The document entitled “PLAINTIFF’S MEMORANDUM OF LAW IN RESPONSE TO ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE,” filed on 8 Dec 11, by DurretteCrump, PLC (Wyatt B. Durrette, Jr., Esq., Christine Williams, Esq., J. Buckley Warden, Esq.). I don’t have any information on DurretteCrump, PLC, but working to support the Trolls isn’t going to garner them any “nice” points from Santa Claus. 3Trolls_Memo
Plaintiff most likely hired DurretteCrump, PLC to write a document asking that Rule 11 sanctions not to imposed on Plaintiff or the Troll. The document is long and has attachments – I need to review these. I will make a full review and post my thoughts. One funny section can be found on page 4.
On October 24, 2011, the Court held a hearing on the issues related to whether Plaintiff and/or its counsel should be sanctioned for violating Rule 11.1 On October 24, 2011, the Court docketed a ―Declaration to Refute Plaintiff‘s Declaration in Support of Motion for Reconsideration and Response to Show Cause Order (Docket #22)‖ filed by ―an anonymous John Doe‖ also known as ―DieTrollDie‖. (Docket No. 39). This ―Declaration‖ was not verified or attested to in any matter and was filed by an admitted non-party to this case who lacks standing to file pleadings in this matter.
Well I guess the torpedo did some damage. 🙂 As I stated in that declaration, I do have “standing” because of being a Doe defendant (in a different case), running my Blog (and talking to other Doe defendants), and MOST importantly in this case because the Troll mentioned the Blog/Internet forums that provide Motion templates/examples for Doe defendants to use (as a negative) – my Motions Page. “YOU (Mr. Troll) opened the door that allowed me to come in.” 😉 As far as the statement that my declaration was not verified/attested to – stop it please. I listed my Blog, as well as the other documents I cited. The court and others can do verification if they want to.
I understand that filing any motion/declaration anonymously is not as strong as doing it named. The reason we (as Does) do this is to prevent being attacked by a powerful adversary because we are threatening their highly lucrative business model. Even if filed anonymously, the court can read our arguments and judge if they make sense. Don’t think you cannot contribute to this fight. Any support you can provide is appreciated.
As I’m writing about these funny happenings, I can’t help to think about this – Good Laugh.
