Hello all! I hope you are having (or will have) a great Valentines day/evening with your significant other.
I apologize for being out of the loop lately, but thing have been rather busy on various fronts. I mulling around some ideas for developing articles, while waiting to see if the last declaration I sent is even accepted for filing (regardless if it is eventually stricken). I will wait a little bit longer and then post the text of it, as the information may still be of use to someone.
In the mean time, please enjoy the following bit of Troll stupidity. I want to thank the individual who provided me this document. The Troll in question is Terik Hashmi (AKA Teryk Hashmi), of the International Law Group, LLC, Miami Beach, FL, & Transnational Law Group LLC, Atlanta, GA. This Troll has filed a few cases in the Northern District of Florida. See https://dietrolldie.com/2012/01/04/grounds-for-sanctions-inaccurate-andor-false-statement-from-jon-nicolini-ceg-411-cv-00583-digital-sin-inc-v-does-1-208/.
The following document (Doc # 48) was filed on case 4:11-cv-00583, Third degree Films Inc., vs. John Does 1-259, on 13 Feb 12. The document is titled ” NOTICE REGARDING UNAUTHORIZED PRACTICE OF LAW AND/OR MOTION TO STRIKE PLEADINGS AND DISMISS SUIT.” Hashmi_3rdD_Felony (I will post it to SCRIBD in a bit).
Daniel Simon (FL Bar # 0016244), Lalchandani Simon PL, filed this motion as the attorney for John Does 88, 103, & 126. In the motion, Simon tells the court that Hashmi is not licensed to practice law in FL (only in OH), but works out of a Miami Beach, FL, law office. Simons also found a nice affidavit from Hashmi, titled “CEASE AND DESIST AFFIDAVIT,” (Exhibit A) in which he Hashmi admits he is not licensed to practice law in FL, agrees to stop practicing law in FL, and acknowledges that doing so is a 3rd degree felony. The cease and desist affidavit was sign by Hashmi and notarized on 5 Aug 10.
but he appears to tried to shield himself by filing some cases in Georgia – Exhibit B to the motion (case number 11-cv-00570, Third Degree Films Inc., vs. John Does 1-259, in the Northern District of Georgia, 29 Nov 11).
Simons asks the court to dismiss the suit due to this blatant disregard of FL law, as well as taking whatever actions it deems are appropriate. This will be interesting to see what the judge thinks of this development.
