DTD Torpedo Strikes 2:12-cv-08333, Ingenuity 13, LLC (Prenda Fraud Company), v. John Doe (CA)

29 Jan 13 – Update

I will make this short.  On 28 Jan 13, Troll Gibbs filed a Voluntary Dismissal of case 2:12-cv-08333, Ingenuity 13, LLC, (Prenda Fraud Company), v. John Doe.  Archive Docket.   It doesn’t show that the court has approved this dismissal, but it will likely come.  No closure until the Alan Cooper questions are answered.  😉

Congratulations John Doe and Morgan Pietz!   DismissedCase_08333(CA)

Troll Gibbs got his final whine in.

Plaintiff maintains its contention that it is factually impossible to identify a John Doe through an IP address without obtaining ISP subscriber information; as such, Plaintiff now dismisses this action without prejudice in order to avoid the futility of attempting to litigate these cases under such circumstances.

Make sure you also look at the Fightcopyrighttrolls update concerning this development and a little gem from Judge Wright following the dismissal by Troll Gibbs.   Doc45_Order_08333(CA)  This order (issued on 28 Jan 13) instructs both sides that Plaintiff/Prenda is still required to answer the Discovery questions concerning Alan Cooper by 12 Feb 13.  The judge also stated a case status report in due to be filed no later than 19 Feb 13, with a mandatory case status conference to be held in the court on 4 Mar 13, at 1:30PM.  The purpose of the conference is “to discuss the status of this early discovery.” 😉

This going to be fun to watch, as the court made it clear that failure to abide by these orders will result in sanctions.

Life sometimes gets so busy that you have to put certain tasks on hold while you “put out the fires” that come with everyone’s life.  I was planning to write a declaration for this case after reading the mindless ramble Prenda Troll Brett Gibbs made regarding http://www.fightcopyrighttrolls.com and myself while seeking sanctions against Doe Defender Morgan Pietz.   Mot_Sanc_08333(CA)

There is a community of individuals who are strongly anti-copyright enforcement, who operate the ridiculously-titled websites fightcopyrighttrolls.com and dietrolldie.com. Mr. Pietz’s actions described herein are designed to achieve greater publicity from these websites, with the aim of drumming up business from defendants who have been sued by Prenda Law for copyright infringement.

This case (archive docket) is a particularly busy one in which Troll Gibbs went so far as to try to get the judge dismissed because he wasn’t Troll-friendly and had granted Defendant/Mr. Pietz motion to make Plaintiff answer certain questions concerning the apparent “Alan Cooper” fraud.

Writing this declaration was almost as fun as imagining Troll Gibbs throwing another tantrum after finding it in his inbox.  Please take a read and tell me what you think.   DTD_Torpedo_08333(CA)   One point I made in the declaration (see section 9) was to show how Troll Gibbs violated a Colorado court (Cisa case) order in another California Troll case (Hutcherson, 4-12-cv-05833, NDCA).

I do think the declaration has a good chance of staying on the docket, but you never really know.  As Troll Gibbs already did his best to piss off the judge by trying to get him removed from the case, I like my odds.  Until next time… The song remains the same.

    Don’t have much to say. Kudos!

    While we all applaud your efforts, maybe there should be some formally named organization whose purpose is to file Amicus Curiae briefs in appropriate cases in order to shed light on Prenda’s practices. How about “Brett Gibbs Defense Information Center” (acronym)

  3. Raul says:

    Great job! IMHO this is one of the top six troll lawsuits to watch and I am overjoyed/surprised you got a say in the matter.

  4. DieTrollDie says:

    It is funny how when rereading various items, somethings “clicks.” Most of involved in this mess understand clearly that this is a business of the Copyright Trolls, with the various Plaintiffs along for the ride and hoping for some profits from it. For these cases, most of the legal papers are written to say these actions are based on what the Plaintiff wants. In reality it is the Copyright Troll controlling the actions. But what happens when the two are actually the same? – Plaintiff and Troll – as in this case. You get a statement like this one from Prenda in the Motion for Sanction.

    “…from defendants who have been sued by Prenda Law for copyright infringement.”

    It is no smoking gun, but I think this clearly states to the court/judge, that Prenda Law Inc./Plaintiff (Ingenuity 13 – AF Holdings) are the same. Now lets see if the court will compel Plaintiff/Prenda to answer the question about “Alan Cooper.”

    I would have been dotting my i’s with little hearts… 🙂
    But then I really enjoy pissing trolls off and will take the shortest path to do so.
    I wonder if we’ve ever had Judges visit here or FCT… you guys get mentioned enough you’d think a Judge or clerk would get curious what the heck happens here.

    Funny but I didn’t see what the document number for the torpedo was – #42!!! http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/history/42-the-answer-to-life-the-universe-and-everything-2205734.html 😉
