Does dismissed from the New Sensations Bittorrent case.

Allow me to congratulation all the Cashman Law Firm, PLLC clients who have been dismissed from New Sensations, Inc. v. Does 1-1,745 (Case No. 3:10-cv-05863-WHA) filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

As we suspected and discussed on July 18th in our “Judge Alsup takes over “New Sensations, Inc.” case” article, this case is now dead. However, the case died on Ira Siegel’s own sword, so to speak, rather than by the hands of Judge Alsup.

To help you understand my understanding of the reasons behind the dismissal, your plaintiff attorney, Ira Siegel was scheduled to stand in front of Judge Alsup tomorrow, 10/6. In short, I was expecting that the recent events with Judge Zimmerman in the dismissal of the Tru Filth case (see here) would be eclipsed by a more zealous Judge Alsup, and I understood that Siegel was not in the mood for another embarrassing experience. In short, Judge Alsup is a prolific judge who has a reputation for having little patience for attorneys who do not have their cases in order. I understand that in light of the recent events, instead of facing Judge Alsup, Siegel decided to back away and dismiss all defendants. To those of you who were defendants in this case, please allow me to congratulate you on your victory!

  1. If you think this is good, read the scathing orders, published on EFF, issued by Judge McBryde to Evan Stone a week ago!

    The endless onslaught of orders from Judge McBryde here seems remarkably scathing. This looks to be one of the, if not ‘the’, strongest recent reversals by a judge against copyright trolls!

  2. What does it mean to be dismissed? Does it mean New Sensations cannot file another suit against these Does for this file? Or can they reopen in another state or case?

  3. so if you get a settlement paper in the mail from trufilth llc should it just be ignored? or should I take it to a lawyer for them to handle?

  4. Why should someone pay an attorney based on their initial threat letter?

    What are the odds that you will ever hear from them again if you are not in their jurisdiction?

    Out of the thousands of people (does) filed against what is the actual percentage of persons named and pursued in court?
