Lawyer Says He Was Deceived Into BitTorrent Copyright Trolling Scheme

Story :

A lawyer who worked on dozens of cases designed to extract cash settlements from alleged BitTorrent pirates is now suing his former paymasters. Lawyer James Davis, who litigated Dallas Buyers Club and London Has Fallen cases, says the people involved in the scheme deliberately deceived him. He's now demanding at least $300,000 in damages.

The shadowy nature of this global business means that its true scale will never be known but due to the controversial activities of some of the larger players, it’s occasionally possible to take a peek inside their operations. One such opportunity has just raised its head.

“Crowell and other Defendants withheld numerous material facts that were known to Crowell and the knowledge of which would have cast doubt on the value and ethical propriety of the Copyright Litigation Campaign for Mr. Davis,” the lawsuit reads.

Davis goes on to allege serious misconduct, including that representations regarding ownership of various entities were false and used to deceive him into participating in the scheme.

good for him. every case like this helps to shine a light on this scam.
