Prenda Law: EFF Has “The Same Goals” As “Terrorist Group Wikileaks”

Prenda Law's litigation campaign against people allegedly sharing obscure pornographic films on BitTorrent hasn't been going well. A growing number of judges has taken notice of accusations that Prenda stole the identity of a Minnesota man named Alan Cooper and named him CEO of the litigious shell company AF Holdings. Prenda's lawyers have invoked the Fifth Amendment to avoid answering potentially incriminating questions about how Cooper's signature wound up on AF Holdings legal documents.

Prenda has been seeking dismissal of pending lawsuits around the country in an effort to contain the fallout. In one North Georgia case, Prenda had already obtained a default judgment after the defendant, Rajesh Patel, failed to respond to Prenda's lawsuit. Yet the law firm is now seeking to dismiss the case without Patel paying a dime.

But Patel has said that before dismissing the case, the judge should investigate Prenda's misconduct and force Prenda to pay Patel's legal bills. In a strident response filed on Saturday, Prenda lawyer Jacques Nazaire accused Patel's lawyer Blair Chintella of engaging in an ideological witch hunt with the support of the dastardly Electronic Frontier Foundation.

:lol: Yeah.

Or something like Scooby Doo.

He'd have gotten away with it too if it wasn't for those meddling kids at the EFF.

a note to prenda law: wikilieaks is not a terrorist group, it's a business run by a cynical loser who thinks it's a good thing to manipulate information for personal profit while pretending to be doing everyone a favor. come to think of it, that sounds just like you guys.
