In a strongly worded complaint, Elf-Man, LLC has sued the former Doe No. 43 in a separate lawsuit seeking substantial damages.
The Case No. is 13-CV-3884.
Strategically, Doe No. 43 made a major mistake, as he filed a motion to sever (and quash the subpoena to his ISP) in the earlier case 13-CV-2362. Elf-Man’s response was, of course, to dismiss him/her without prejudice and file a separate suit. Regretfully, Doe No. 43’s cost of settlement has likely gone up by 100% or more.
