Guava v. Does 1-5, Case No. 12-8000 (N.D. Ill. June 27, 2013)(Darrah)
In an opinion that frequently quoted Judge Wright’s lambasting of Prenda Law (the counsel and/or owner of Guava) and its principals as well as Judge Tailor’s decision in the infamous Guava v. Skyler case, Judge Darrah denied Guava expedited discovery in this case. To wit, the following lines aptly summarize Judge Darrah’s opinion:
[T]he Ingenuity Court remarked that Prenda Law’s attorneys “suffer from a form of moral turpitude unbecoming of an officer of the court […]” Against this backdrop, Guava’s need for expedited discovery and the risk of harm from such discovery must be balanced and evaluated.
Yet another set back for Prenda.
