Bandlow’s work representing Strike 3 Holdings, which makes porn films under the brands “Tushy,” “Vixen” and “Blacked,” has come under increased scrutiny from judges around the country. The company’s file-and-settle strategy has led at least one judge to label it a “copyright troll,” and also led to sanctions against Bandlow for failing to meet court deadlines. At the same time, Bandlow continues to battle a challenge involving the evidence Strike 3’s lawsuits rely upon.

U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth of the District of Columbia wrote in a November opinion that Strike 3 Holdings’ cases were “a high-tech legal shakedown” seeking to “treat this court not as a citadel of justice, but as an ATM.”

Bandlow was also ordered to pay opposing counsel’s fees amounting to $700 by U.S. District Judge Thomas Zilly of the Western District of Washington after fighting efforts to depose Greg Lansky, a co-owner and the public face of Strike 3 who filed a declaration in each case describing damage done to his business by internet pirating.

The defense in that case won another ruling May 3 when Zilly ordered that Strike 3 must produce the underlying data that shows U.S. residents have illegally downloaded the company’s videos. Zilly said Strike 3 also must hand over some form of evidence to prove its claims that the mass pirating of its content is bedeviling the company’s finances.
