Strike 3 Holdings quietly returned to Federal Court in 2021.

strike-3-holdings-anonymous-settlement

Strike 3 Holdings LLC cases have always ebbed and flowed. They typically sue a handful of “John Doe subscriber” defendants in a federal court for copyright infringement (for the illegal download of their copyrighted adult films under the Tushy, Blacked, Vixen, Deeper brand names).

This article is a follow-up to last year’s January 2021 article, “Strike 3 Holdings’ Dirty Secret – They already know who the downloader is.”

Who Settles, Who Fights in Litigation

Those “John Doe subscribers” who have been caught downloading the adult film titles usually end up paying money to settle the claims against them. Those who did not download their copyrighted titles should not settle.

Who is “caught” downloading?

Just for clarity, those who are “caught” does not mean those who were monitored using BitTorrent to download a particular adult film. Yes, Strike 3 Holdings LLC *does* get their lists of IP addresses of “John Doe subscriber” defendants from the logs of the BitTorrent networks, but their logs are INSUFFICIENT to prove that it was YOU — the accused “John Doe Subscriber” — who downloaded a particular video on a particular date and time.

Who is NOT “caught” downloading?

Rather, in order to find that it is “more likely than not” you who did the download (in civil cases, this is referred to as the “preponderance of the evidence”), they need your TESTIMONY UNDER OATH where you admit to them [usually in a DEPOSITION] that it was you who downloaded their copyrighted video(s) using BitTorrent.

If you did not download the videos (and you do not know who did), AND you are ready, able, and willing to show up at a deposition and testify under oath (lying means perjury which is jail time) that you did not download their videos, then THERE IS NO REASON TO PAY THEM ANY MONEY TO SETTLE THE CLAIMS AGAINST YOU.

Those who did not do the downloads hopefully do not settle, and Strike 3 Holdings LLC moves on to other defendants in other lawsuits.

In 2020-2021 (and still a few lagging cases now in 2022), Strike 3 Holdings LLC came up with a way to “sue” defendants and get them to pay them money to settle, but they did so WITHOUT having the federal courts and the federal court judges monitor their cases and watch what they were doing.

They did this by suing defendants in the Miami-Dade County Court (just as Malibu Media did a few years beforehand). Malibu Media LLC (another adult film company hosting the x-art.com website brands) sued defendants in both the Miami-Dade Florida County Court and the Maricopa County Arizona County Court using the states’ “Bill of Discovery” rules.

The purpose of these state-based lawsuits were to uncover the naked identity of the ISP subscriber / account holders’ true identity without requiring a subpoena from a “John Doe Subscriber” lawsuit in a Federal Court.

Eventually, the Malibu Media LLC Miami-Dade County Court and Maricopa County Court strategies were eventually cut short, but Strike 3 Holdings LLC continued these state-based “lawsuits” for quite a bit longer than Malibu Media LLC was able to do so. As of writing this article (1/23/2022), I was shocked to see that there were a few Miami-Dade cases still open:

Miami-Dade Florida Strike 3 Holdings LLC Cases Still Open: 2021-031976-CC-05, 2021-024828-CC-05, 2021-020640-CC-05, 2021-016035-CC-05, 2021-010905-CC-05

Why I wrote THIS article. What changed from the Miami-Dade County, Florida state-based cases?

What shocked me, however, was how quickly Strike 3 Holdings LLC moved their cases back into the federal courts in 2021. As I wrote in our most recent “STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS – LIST OF CASES BY STATE (JANUARY 2022)” article, it appears as if Strike 3 Holdings LLC has made use of their Miami-Dade Florida state-based lawsuits and has sued defendants in Federal Court.

Thousands of defendants were implicated in the Miami-Dade County, Florida Court, but most of them DID NOT LIVE IN FLORIDA. Thus, they were filing lawsuits against defendants KNOWING that the Florida courts had NO PERSONAL JURISDICTION against most of the defendants. Strike 3 would not do this without a PURPOSE. What was their end goal in uncovering all those thousands and thousands of names of would-be accused defendants?

I was sure that these THOUSANDS of Strike 3 Miami-Dade defendants would eventually be sued in the federal courts.

EVENTUALLY, Strike 3 Holdings would sue the defendants in FEDERAL COURTS.

And they did…

In 2021, Strike 3 Holdings LLC filed ~2,209 lawsuits in Federal Courts across the US, each lawsuit claiming $150,000 in copyright infringement damages against ONE John Doe subscriber defendant.

For each lawsuit, they paid a ~$400 filing fee. In December, 2021 alone, they filed 163 cases in federal courts.

If you calculate a ~$400 filing fee per lawsuit x 163 lawsuits filed in DECEMBER 2021, you can easily calculate that Strike 3 Holdings LLC “invested” $65,200 in DECEMBER ALONE for the sole purpose of suing John Doe subscriber defendants in order to solicit large settlements from each of the 163 defendants.

There are not many words I can add to the the story the numbers tell. They speak for themselves as to exactly what Strike 3 Holdings LLC has been doing.

2021 FILINGS BY STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS (BY MONTH)

I went back through the court filings in 2021 to confirm whether they have started suing defendants in federal courts again, and the answer was a big “yes.”

List of Recent Strike 3 Holdings Federal Court Filings by State

Here is a list of Strike 3 Holdings filings in the Federal Courts for each state in which they sued defendants:

California
California Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Lincoln Bandlow of Bandlow Law.

Lincoln Bandlow used to work for Fox Rothschild, LLP, where he ran all of the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys and their cases across the US. But since the shake-up in May, 2019, he left Fox Rothschild, LLP and started his own law firm.

I still think that Lincoln is behind the scenes running each of the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC cases filed across the US, but I no longer think he has sole authority and decision-making power. I believe that John Atkin (NJ) and Jackie James (NY/CT) also have similar power and authority.

New Jersey
New Jersey Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by John Atkin of The Atkin Firm, LLC.

John Atkin used to work for Fox Rothschild, LLP in New Jersey. John Atkin was the only one of the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys handling all of the New Jersey Strike 3 Holdings filings, however, at the time in which he was with Fox Rothschild, LLP, I did not get the sense that he had authority to negotiate the cases himself. Rather, it appeared as if he was local counsel filing cases for Lincoln Bandlow.

That changed in/around May, 2019. As you have read above, in my observation, John Atkin overthrew Lincoln Bandlow’s authority and carved out autonomy for himself among the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys in the hierarchy. By May, 2019, he already left Fox Rothschild, LLP and started his own law firm. I learned about this when I started seeing “The Atkin Firm, LLC” on the cases in which I was representing clients rather than Fox Rothschild, LLP.

I still think that Lincoln might still be the “boss” of the various Strike 3 Holdings attorneys across the US along with the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC cases, but it appears to me as if John Atkin is working on his own (maybe as a co-equal boss with Lincoln Bandlow and/or Jackie James), with sole authority and decision-making power over his cases.

For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the newly filed Strike 3 Holdings New Jersey cases:

*NOTES TO SELF: There are TWO IMPORTANT reasons why Strike 3 Holdings, LLC is putting so much money into filing lawsuits in New Jersey:

1) Strike 3 Holdings, LLC almost lost New Jersey as a state in which they would be allowed by the federal court to sue defendants (for lawyers, it was bad case law). For a short while, judges stood up to Strike 3 Holdings, LLC and stopped them from being allowed to send subpoenas to ISPs to force the ISPs to hand over the subscriber information to them.

Apparently Strike 3 won that battle, so now they are taking advantage of that “WIN” and suing many defendants in New Jersey.

2) The plaintiff attorney for each of these New Jersey cases is John Atkin of the Atkin Firm, LLC. There is a history WHY John Atkin is important to New Jersey, and that history is uncovered by understanding WHAT HAPPENED with the shake-up of attorneys last year.

New York
New York Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Jacqueline M. James (Jackie James) of The James Law Firm, PLLC.

Just as I described in the “Connecticut” section, Jackie James used to represent Malibu Media, LLC, another prolific copyright troll. Jackie was in charge of all of the Malibu Media, LLC cases filed in the New York federal courts.

I consider Jacqueline James to be a “boss” when categorizing her among the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys in their hierarchy.

Jackie James at one point was an important attorney filing many cases for Malibu Media, LLC. She even stayed with them after there was a shake-up of Malibu Media, LLC attorneys, but then one day she stopped filing for them.

It is important to note that Jacqueline James stopped representing Malibu Media, LLC because she dropped them as a client. She did not “swing from one branch to the next” by dropping one client in favor of a more profitable one. When she dropped Malibu Media, LLC as a client, she did not have another client.

It was only later that [I presume] Strike 3 Holdings contacted her and asked her to file copyright infringement lawsuits on their behalf. Today, she appears to have independent authority and control of her cases, and she is in charge of the Strike 3 Holdings federal court lawsuits filed in New York and more recently, in Connecticut.

When negotiating cases, Jacqueline James is known to be a difficult negotiator, but she is also fair. Be prepared to support everything you say with facts and if needed, documentation. Jackie James is the kind of attorney who does not simply take statements at face value, but she asks questions and follow-up questions… often which lead to uncomfortable conversations. Again, however, she is not known to gouge on settlement prices, but she is a tough in her approach.

UPDATE: I am happy to share that while searching for Dawn Sciarrino (when writing up the Virginia cases), I could not understand why she would take Strike 3 Holdings, LLC as a client. However, searching for her, I found that Jackie James actually listed her as an attorney under her law firm. While I will post Dawn’s page under her state, because her we are discussing Jackie, you can find Jacqueline James’ profile and website here.

Pennsylvania
Pennsylvania Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Jason M. Saruya of Clark Hill PLC.

Jason Saruya of Clark Hill PLC is the name of the attorney who is showing up for the Strike 3 filings in Pennsylvania District Court.

He works for Clark Hill PLC, and he works out of the Philadephia, PA office.

There is not much information about Jason Saruya, but from what I understand, he is a younger attorney, and he is probably working with Elsy Velasquez as his superior, as Elsy Velasquez was the attorney from Clark Hill PLC that took over the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC Maryland cases after the shake-up of their attorneys.

For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the newly filed Strike 3 Holdings Pennsylvania cases:

Virginia
Virginia Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Dawn Marie Sciarrino of Sciarrino & Shubert, PLLC (more recently, I have found that she is working for Jacqueline James, the Strike 3 Holdings attorney for the NY/CT region).

Dawn Marie Sciarrino is the name of the attorney who is showing up for the Strike 3 filings in the Virginia federal court filings.

MY ORIGINAL WRITE-UP ON DAWN:
Dawn Marie appears to be a partner in her law firm, and she works out of Centreville, VA.

There is not much information about Dawn Marie Sciarrino (even their https://www.sciarrino.com website was down when I tried to reach it).

From what I understand, she has been practicing as an attorney for many years. Her first bar was in New York in 1991, and she has represented clients before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and for the District of Columbia Circut.

What I do not understand is… [with her background, both educational and vocational] why in the world would she take Strike 3 Holdings, LLC as a client? This makes no sense to me.

UPDATED INFORMATION:
Doing further research, I was very surprised to see that Dawn Sciarrino was listed as an attorney in Jackie James’ website.

Understanding Jackie James’ background and her experience, the connection between Jackie and Dawn became clear. They know each other. It was likely Jackie who suggested that Dawn take the Virginia cases because Strike 3 Holdings, LLC needed an attorney to file lawsuits in the Virginia federal courts against those Miami-Dade Strike 3 Holdings defendants who did not settle the claims against them.

Texas
Texas Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by either:

Forrest Matthew Seger, III of Clark Hill (San Antonio), or
Andy Nikolopoulos and David Grant Crooks, both from Fox Rothschild LLP.

As of January, 2022, I have not seen many new cases filed in the various Texas District courts, however, I *have* seen a LOT of activity by Forrest Matthew Seger, III on his cases from 2021. Thus, I would not mistake “no new cases” to mean “no activity.” There is a LOT of activity in Texas.

    Strike 3 Holdings’ Dirty Secret – They already know who the downloader is.

    strike-3-holdings-anonymous-settlement

    Strike 3 Holdings LLC has been on a tear, filing lawsuits across the US. This time, when they file lawsuits against unknown “John Doe” Defendants in the Federal Courts, do they already know the identities of each of these defendants?

    I wrote a “one-year later” update to this article in January, 2022, “Strike 3 Holdings LLC state-based cases quietly returned to Federal Courts in 2021.”

    It was only a matter of time before Strike 3 Holdings sued Miami-Dade defendants in the Federal Courts.

    I have been saying for months that Strike 3 Holdings, LLC would begin suing the thousands of accused defendants in the federal courts that they sorted through in their Miami-Dade, Florida “Bill of Discovery” lawsuits.

    Have you read enough? Book Now to get help. > > >

    All of 2020, Strike 3 Holdings, LLC has been using Florida’s “Bill of Discovery” to force ISPs to uncover the identities of THOUSANDS of defendants. However, not one defendant was sued in the Miami-Dade, Florida County court for the copyright infringement they were accused of.

    You can read about the Pure Bill of Discovery topic here.

    Why must Strike 3 Holdings file lawsuits against thousands of former Miami-Dade defendants in the Federal Courts? Couldn’t they sue them in the Miami-Dade, FL County Court?

    A bit of law here for those that are new to the topic:

    ANSWER #1) PERSONAL JURISDICTION. A court may not hear a lawsuit against a defendant when that court does not have power or control over that defendant. They must have jurisdiction over that defendant, and this is accomplished most frequently by the defendant living in the state where the lawsuit is filed.

    ANSWER #2) SUBJECT MATTER JURISDICTION as it applies to copyright cases. Copyright infringement cases may only be brought in FEDERAL COURTS.

    Strike 3 Holdings CANNOT sue an accused defendant for copyright infringement in a STATE OR COUNTY court (Miami-Dade is a County Court, not a Federal Court). Copyright infringement lawsuits can only be brought in a FEDERAL court.

    Have you read enough? Book Now to get help. > > >

    Which federal court? They must sue the defendant in the U.S. District Court for the District [state] in which HE LIVES.

    Thousands of defendants were implicated in the Miami-Dade County, Florida Court, but most of them DID NOT LIVE IN FLORIDA. Thus, the Florida courts likely had NO jurisdiction over any of the out-of-state defendants.

    EVENTUALLY, Strike 3 Holdings would sue the defendants in FEDERAL COURTS.

    I was sure that these THOUSANDS of Strike 3 Miami-Dade defendants would eventually be sued in the federal courts.

    For this reason, I went back to August, 2020 (~6 months) to confirm whether they have started suing defendants in federal courts again, and the answer was a big “uh huh.”

    *UPDATED* NUMBER OF STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LAWSUITS FILED IN FEDERAL COURTS EACH MONTH.

    As far as I can glean from the records of which cases were filed when and where, this is what I have come up with:

    Number of Lawsuits filed as of April 30, 2021 (04-2021): 88 New Cases (and counting).
    Number of Lawsuits filed in March, 2021 (03-2021): 68 New Cases.
    Number of Lawsuits filed in February, 2021 (02-2021): 77 New Cases.
    Number of Lawsuits filed in January, 2021 (01-2021): 132 New Cases.
    Number of Lawsuits filed in December, 2020 (12-2020): 115 New Cases.
    Number of Lawsuits filed in November, 2020 (11-2020): 85 New Cases.

    Number of Lawsuits filed in August, 2020 (08-2020): 114 New Cases.

    Why are all of the Federal Court Strike 3 Cases against “JOHN DOE” defendants?

    In my gleaning, I found it interesting that all of the Federal Court lawsuits were filed against JOHN DOE DEFENDANTS. This was strange to me, because in all likelihood, we knew that Strike 3 already obtained the accused internet user’s name and address through the Miami-Dade Bill of Discovery lawsuits. So why are they still suing them as John Does?

    A “JOHN DOE” Defendant is merely a PLACEHOLDER for the real Defendant.

    A plaintiff sues a John Doe defendant when the identity of the defendant is still unknown. The John Doe is merely a placeholder, only to be replaced by the actual defendant’s name when the plaintiff attorney amends the complaint and “names and serves” a defendant.

    QUESTION: Why sue accused defendants as JOHN DOE placeholders when they already know the ISP subscriber’s identity from the Miami-Dade lawsuits?

    If Strike 3 Holdings already learned the identity of each of these accused John Doe Defendants when they were implicated as defendants in the former Strike 3 Miami-Dade lawsuits in the Florida county court, then WHY would they suggest* to the federal courts that they do not know the identity of the defendant when they sue them as a John Doe?

    * I used the term “suggest” to avoid an implication that they were outright lying to the federal courts. At the bottom of this article, I explain 1) why them suing as John Doe Defendants may be appropriate (maybe they did not do research as to who actually did the download), and 2) that it is actually better for a defendant to be sued as a John Doe before he is forced into litigation to answer the claims against him (e.g., so that he can file a protective order to protect his identity, etc.).

    ANSWER: It is more convenient to sue all of the defendants as JOHN DOE placeholders rather than litigating against each defendant.

    CONVENIENCE. If Strike 3 Holdings sued each of these 694 defendant using their real names (e.g., Strike 3 Holdings, LLC v. Daniel TrueName), they would effectively have 694 cases running in the “litigation” stage concurrently.

    This means that they would have to pay process servers to serve defendants at their 694 different locations across the US.

    Each of the defendants would have to file an answer with the court within 21 days or face default, and Strike 3 would want to file responses to those answers.

    Then, Strike 3 Holdings LLC would have 694 separate case management hearings, where each of their attorneys across the US (usually one Strike 3 Holdings attorney covering 1-3 states or territories) would need to show up in federal courtrooms across the US setting deadlines for each of their lawsuits to come up with the evidence.

    Then, they would need to arrange, complete, and respond to and participate in depositions and digital forensic searches for each of these defendants… AT THE SAME TIME.

    Strike 3 Holdings

    PRETENDING not to know the identities of the John Doe defendants is part of their SCHEME.

    Can you imagine Strike 3 Holdings, LLC trying to litigate 694 lawsuits at the same time?

    If Strike 3 Holdings, LLC pretends NOT to know the identities of each of the defendants (while they already do from the Miami-Dade Bill of Discovery lawsuits), they receive MANY EXTRA MONTHS to solicit settlements from the accused defendants before they are required to name and serve the accused defendants.

    Whether their lawyers actually sat in a room and planned this out, or whether this was an unexpected consequence [of them 1) suing first in the Miami-Dade County Court to expose the identities of the ISP account holders, and then 2) suing the accused defendants in the federal courts to actually file copyright infringement lawsuits against those same defendants], you must admit that this was a genius plan as far as strategizing how to “game” the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure to maximize their ability to “solicit” settlements from each and every accused defendant.

    Here is how the scheme would play out:

    SCHEME ELEMENT #1: PRETEND to the Federal Courts that you do not know the identity of the JOHN DOE defendants (when they secretly do).

    Instead of suing a defendant by his name (and starting the litigation process against the defendant), an easier solution for Strike 3 Holdings, LLC is for them to to “pretend” to the Federal Court that they do not know who you are. They sue you as a “John Doe,” or a “John Doe subscriber assigned IP address XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX,” and ask the court to authorize them to send a subpoena to the internet service provider (ISP) and force them to [again] share the identity of the ISP account subscriber who was assigned a particular IP address at a particular date and time. Then, they sit back and comfortably wait for the settlement requests to roll in.

    The judges [still oblivious of the Miami-Dade cases] approve their request to have the subpoenas sent to the ISPs. Each ISP is instructed by court order to hand over the identities of the ISP account holders (even though Strike 3 Holdings, LLC “secretly” already knows who they are).

    SCHEME ELEMENT #2: SETTLE CASES for weeks or months while the ISPs slowly comply with their subpoena requests.

    Strike 3 Holdings, LLC then waits weeks or months for the ISPs to comply. During this time, they wait for all the panicked defendants [who were former Miami-Dade lawsuit defendants] to panic and call them to arrange a settlement. All of this time, the accused defendants are “John Doe” defendants, and Strike 3 accomplished this without naming and serving a SINGLE defendant. Genius.

    The plaintiff attorneys in this mass bittorrent lawsuit scheme then settle as many cases as they can before the 90-day deadline for them to name and serve the defendant expires (according to recent FRCP procedural law changes, plaintiffs now have only 90 days before they need to amend the complaint and sue the actual downloader in the place of the John Doe placeholder).

    SCHEME ELEMENT #3: RELY ON THE ISPs BEING SLOW to respond to the subpoenas.

    The ISPs are notoriously slow in producing the identities of their subscribers. No doubt Strike 3 Holdings is aware of this. In fact, they could be relying on this to give them extra time — sometimes weeks or months — to solicit a settlement from each John Doe defendant.

    SCHEME ELEMENT #4: BLAME THE ISPs for not complying with the subpoena in time, and asking the court for an EXTENSION OF TIME.

    If the ISP does not timely share the identities of each of the subpoena requests (as they often do not through no fault of their own), the plaintiff attorney gets close to the 90-day deadline without knowing who is the ISP account holder behind the accused IP address. Strike 3 Holdings is thus unable to name and serve the defendant, as a result, they ask the court for an additional 90 days, blaming the ISP for not producing the identities of the account holders in time.

    “Judge, we cannot do our due diligence in investigating whether this John Doe Defendant is the one who downloaded my client’s movies because the ISP has not yet told us WHO this defendant is!”

    – Plaintiff Attorney

    THE DIRTY SECRET: STRIKE 3 KNOWS ALL ALONG THE REAL IDENTITY OF THE JOHN DOE DEFENDANT.

    The dirty secret is that ALL ALONG, Strike 3 Holdings likely already knows the identity of each of the defendants [from the Miami-Dade cases], and they are already probably in communication with them trying to get them to settle the claims against them for as much as possible. From a “federal rules” procedural perspective, it’s the perfect scheme.

    Thus, if you were once a defendant in the Miami-Dade lawsuits, and now you are an accused defendant in the federal court in the state in which you reside, now you understand how and why you appear to have been “sued twice,” (first in the Miami-Dade, Florida County Court, and second, in the federal court in the state in which you live).

    Is this scheme deceptive or evil?

    My opinion? Really, no. Even if Strike 3 Holdings LLC obtained the identity of the ISP account holder in the Miami-Dade lawsuit, technically, the ISP account holder often is not the actual downloader who downloaded Strike 3 Holdings’ copyrighted videos.

    ANSWER #1: NO. Strike 3 might not yet have any idea who the defendant should be.

    Often the account holder is a parent, or, a wife, or a landlord, and the one who did the unlawful downloading is not the same person who pays the internet bill. It is also possible with the huge number of defendants implicated in the Miami-Dade Strike 3 cases, Strike 3 might not have even gotten to many or even most of the accused defendants.

    So they might not even know whether the ISP account holder is the one they would like to sue.

    ANSWER #2: NO. An accused defendant would likely prefer to be sued as a “John Doe” placeholder rather than be “named and served” at the outset.

    Even from the point of view of the accused defendant, a defendant who is “named and served” is thrown head-first into costly litigation.

    Being sued as an “anonymous” John Doe Defendant allows that defendant to have time to retain an attorney, learn about the lawsuits, and decide on what options they would like to take in how to respond to or approach the accusations against them.

    As a John Doe, they can file a motion to quash the subpoena (if they do not live in the state in which they were sued), or they can have an attorney contact the plaintiff for them and discuss settlement options. If they did not do the downloading, a defendant could make use of the valuable John Doe phase (and the 90 days they usually get before they are actually named and served) to develop a legal strategy to fight the claims against them.

    So in my opinion, no, there is nothing evil or malicious about being sued as a John Doe. I simply find it silly that procedurally, suing defendants in federal court as John Does (while they already know who they are) is a smart way to steal time by making use of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and the inherent slowness of the process.

    List of Recent Strike 3 Holdings Federal Court Filings by State

    Here is a list of Strike 3 Holdings filings in the Federal Courts for each state in which they have recently sued defendants:

    California
    California Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Lincoln Bandlow of Bandlow Law.

    Lincoln Bandlow used to work for Fox Rothschild, LLP, where he ran all of the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys and their cases across the US. But since the shake-up in May, 2019, he left Fox Rothschild, LLP and started his own law firm.

    I still think that Lincoln is behind the scenes running each of the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC cases filed across the US, but I no longer think he has sole authority and decision-making power. I believe that John Atkin (NJ) and Jackie James (NY/CT) also have similar power and authority.

    Maryland
    Maryland Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Elsy Marleni Ramos Velasquez of Clark Hill PLC.

    Elsy Marleni Ramos Velasquez of Clark Hill PLC (“Elsy Velasquez”) is the name of the Strike 3 Holdings attorney who is showing up for the current slew of Strike 3 filings in Maryland District Court. She showed up as a new attorney filing lawsuits for Strike 3 Holdings, LLC [if I recall correctly] shortly after Lincoln Bandlow left Fox Rothschild, LLP and started his new law firm.

    She works out of Clark Hill PLC, and she works out of their Washington, DC office.

    The first time I contacted Elsy Velasquez was in May, 2019 because she was the attorney that was taking over the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC Maryland cases after the shake-up of their attorneys.

    It is important to note that after a hiatus of filings (probably due to the pandemic), Strike 3 Holdings, LLC has put a lot of faith in Elsy Velasquez by allowing her to file many cases on their behalf.

    *NOTES TO SELF: It is important to note that Strike 3 Holdings appears to be putting A LOT of money and resources into filing lawsuits in Maryland.

    …The logic is that each of these defendants has money to pay a large settlement to them, or else they wouldn’t file the lawsuit against them.

    New Jersey
    New Jersey Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by John Atkin of The Atkin Firm, LLC.

    John Atkin used to work for Fox Rothschild, LLP in New Jersey. John Atkin was the only one of the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys handling all of the New Jersey Strike 3 Holdings filings, however, at the time in which he was with Fox Rothschild, LLP, I did not get the sense that he had authority to negotiate the cases himself. Rather, it appeared as if he was local counsel filing cases for Lincoln Bandlow.

    That changed in/around May, 2019. As you have read above, in my observation, John Atkin overthrew Lincoln Bandlow’s authority and carved out autonomy for himself among the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys in the hierarchy. By May, 2019, he already left Fox Rothschild, LLP and started his own law firm. I learned about this when I started seeing “The Atkin Firm, LLC” on the cases in which I was representing clients rather than Fox Rothschild, LLP.

    I still think that Lincoln might still be the “boss” of the various Strike 3 Holdings attorneys across the US along with the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC cases, but it appears to me as if John Atkin is working on his own (maybe as a co-equal boss with Lincoln Bandlow and/or Jackie James), with sole authority and decision-making power over his cases.

    For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the newly filed Strike 3 Holdings New Jersey cases:

    *NOTES TO SELF: There are TWO IMPORTANT reasons why Strike 3 Holdings, LLC is putting so much money into filing lawsuits in New Jersey:

    1) Strike 3 Holdings, LLC almost lost New Jersey as a state in which they would be allowed by the federal court to sue defendants (for lawyers, it was bad case law). For a short while, judges stood up to Strike 3 Holdings, LLC and stopped them from being allowed to send subpoenas to ISPs to force the ISPs to hand over the subscriber information to them.

    Apparently Strike 3 won that battle, so now they are taking advantage of that “WIN” and suing many defendants in New Jersey.

    2) The plaintiff attorney for each of these New Jersey cases is John Atkin of the Atkin Firm, LLC. There is a history WHY John Atkin is important to New Jersey, and that history is uncovered by understanding WHAT HAPPENED with the shake-up of attorneys last year.

    New York
    New York Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Jacqueline M. James (Jackie James) of The James Law Firm, PLLC.

    Just as I described in the “Connecticut” section, Jackie James used to represent Malibu Media, LLC, another prolific copyright troll. Jackie was in charge of all of the Malibu Media, LLC cases filed in the New York federal courts.

    I consider Jacqueline James to be a “boss” when categorizing her among the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys in their hierarchy.

    Jackie James at one point was an important attorney filing many cases for Malibu Media, LLC. She even stayed with them after there was a shake-up of Malibu Media, LLC attorneys, but then one day she stopped filing for them.

    It is important to note that Jacqueline James stopped representing Malibu Media, LLC because she dropped them as a client. She did not “swing from one branch to the next” by dropping one client in favor of a more profitable one. When she dropped Malibu Media, LLC as a client, she did not have another client.

    It was only later that [I presume] Strike 3 Holdings contacted her and asked her to file copyright infringement lawsuits on their behalf. Today, she appears to have independent authority and control of her cases, and she is in charge of the Strike 3 Holdings federal court lawsuits filed in New York and more recently, in Connecticut.

    When negotiating cases, Jacqueline James is known to be a difficult negotiator, but she is also fair. Be prepared to support everything you say with facts and if needed, documentation. Jackie James is the kind of attorney who does not simply take statements at face value, but she asks questions and follow-up questions… often which lead to uncomfortable conversations. Again, however, she is not known to gouge on settlement prices, but she is a tough in her approach.

    For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the newly filed Strike 3 Holdings New York cases:

    UPDATE: I am happy to share that while searching for Dawn Sciarrino (when writing up the Virginia cases), I could not understand why she would take Strike 3 Holdings, LLC as a client. However, searching for her, I found that Jackie James actually listed her as an attorney under her law firm. While I will post Dawn’s page under her state, because her we are discussing Jackie, you can find Jacqueline James’ profile and website here.

    Pennsylvania Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Jason M. Saruya of Clark Hill PLC.

    Jason Saruya of Clark Hill PLC is the name of the attorney who is showing up for the Strike 3 filings in Pennsylvania District Court.

    He works for Clark Hill PLC, and he works out of the Philadephia, PA office.

    There is not much information about Jason Saruya, but from what I understand, he is a younger attorney, and he is probably working with Elsy Velasquez as his superior, as Elsy Velasquez was the attorney from Clark Hill PLC that took over the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC Maryland cases after the shake-up of their attorneys.

    For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the newly filed Strike 3 Holdings Pennsylvania cases:

    Virginia
    Virginia Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Dawn Marie Sciarrino of Sciarrino & Shubert, PLLC (more recently, I have found that she is working for Jacqueline James, the Strike 3 Holdings attorney for the NY/CT region).

    Dawn Marie Sciarrino is the name of the attorney who is showing up for the Strike 3 filings in the Virginia federal court filings.

    MY ORIGINAL WRITE-UP ON DAWN:
    Dawn Marie appears to be a partner in her law firm, and she works out of Centreville, VA.

    There is not much information about Dawn Marie Sciarrino (even their https://www.sciarrino.com website was down when I tried to reach it).

    From what I understand, she has been practicing as an attorney for many years. Her first bar was in New York in 1991, and she has represented clients before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and for the District of Columbia Circut.

    What I do not understand is… [with her background, both educational and vocational] why in the world would she take Strike 3 Holdings, LLC as a client? This makes no sense to me.

    UPDATED INFORMATION:
    Doing further research, I was very surprised to see that Dawn Sciarrino was listed as an attorney in Jackie James’ website.

    Understanding Jackie James’ background and her experience, the connection between Jackie and Dawn became clear. They know each other. It was likely Jackie who suggested that Dawn take the Virginia cases because Strike 3 Holdings, LLC needed an attorney to file lawsuits in the Virginia federal courts against those Miami-Dade Strike 3 Holdings defendants who did not settle the claims against them.

    For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the newly filed Strike 3 Holdings Virginia cases:

      3 Reasons Why a Strike 3 Holdings Anonymous Settlement is a bad idea.

      strike-3-holdings-anonymous-settlement-vixen-blacked-tushy-deeper

      STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS ANONYMOUS SETTLEMENTS, BUYER BEWARE.

      The purpose of this article is to specifically discuss the prospect of a Strike 3 Holdings Anonymous Settlement. A Strike 3 Holdings lawsuit targets users based on bittorrent activities tracked over a long period of time. Strike 3 Holdings copyright infringement lawsuits are filed with a federal court, Strike 3 Holdings subpoenas are sent to ISP subscribers, and after realizing that filing a motion to quash might not be the best option, deciding whether to negotiate a settlement or to fight becomes the main consideration.

      Strike 3 Holdings settlements are very expensive — not because they ask for a lot of money for the bittorrent download of one of their copyrighted adult films, but because they ask for the settlement of EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THE STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS MOVIES YOU MAY HAVE DOWNLOADED OVER THE COURSE OF YEARS.  Thus, instead of asking for a settlement of, say, $3,500 for the download of one copyrighted video (as other copyright holders do), they’ll ask for a settlement of ALL 50 MOVIES they claim you downloaded over the last three (3) years.  This article will go into the various pitfalls a defendant may face when being lured into a Strike 3 Holdings anonymous settlement.

      NOTE: BEFORE READING THIS ARTICLE: If you have not already done so, and you are implicated as a John Doe in a Strike 3 Holdings, LLC lawsuit, read these first:

      1. ISP Subpoena Notification Received – WALKTHROUGH.”

      strike-3-holdings-anonymous-settlement

      Strike 3 Holdings’s list of “movies infringed” is often INCOMPLETE (and for a reason).

      If you choose to fight and defend the claims against you, they have ‘slick tricks’ built into their lawsuits.  They file their lawsuit alleging copyright infringement of only one (1) video, and they list (for example,) the fifty (50) videos they claim you downloaded over the years.  However, they hold back information from the court and they do not list the newest Vixen / Tushy / Blacked / Deeper. videos you have downloaded in the recent months.  Thus, if the lawsuit was filed in July, 2020 they’ll only list downloads you participated in until February, 2020.  This leaves all of the Strike 3 Holdings downloads you participated in between February 2020 – July 2020 off of the lawsuit.

      Why would they do this?  Because they know that when you start fighting your case, you might dispute a number of their claims.  You might even go line-by-line and claim that they did not follow the copyright laws in protecting their rights (e.g., Strike 3 Holdings has consistently fudged the ‘publication’ requirement, as I have fought with them on this topic in the past).  However, whether you are right or wrong, they always keep “extra ammunition” of other Strike 3 Holdings, LLC (Vixen / Tushy / Blacked / Deeper.) titles you downloaded as a threat against you fighting them on the merits.  For example, they might say “If you argue that this list is not accurate, we actually have many more titles we believe you have downloaded — we can list these too if you would like.”

      Obviously it is more complicated than this, but point being, I have seen that Strike 3 Holdings LLC lawsuits always keeps some set of information ‘off of the table,’ and they reserve this information to gain additional leverage when an inexperienced attorney tries to fight them on the line-by-line details of their case (which, by the way, is often flawed or contains copy-and-paste mistakes from other lawsuits).

      Strike 3 Holdings anticipated anonymous settlements and built in a way to re-sue defendants who settled.

      Now as far as an anonymous settlement, Strike 3 Holdings lawsuits are ‘slick’ here too.  Their lawsuits do not implicate you, a “John Doe” defendant, who has had many IP addresses over the past few years.  Rather, they implicate only “John Doe, subscriber assigned IP address 172.2.51.244,” a John Doe defendant who has been assigned a specific IP address on one day.

      IP addresses are assigned to internet users when their router connects their computer to the internet.  That IP address does not belong to that internet user; rather, it is “leased” to that internet user for a limited time, usually 24 hours, 48 hours, or until they reboot their modem or otherwise obtain a new IP address.  Thus, the IP address you have today might not be the same IP address you had yesterday, and so on.  Now IP addresses are pulled from a limited pool of addresses, so a particular internet service provider (“ISP”) might assign the same IP address to a customer for a few days in a row, but that IP address does not belong to that internet user.  If it did, it would be called a “static IP address” which is significantly more expensive than the residential “dynamic IP addresses” leased to residential ISP customers.

      Why is this relevant to you, the person behind the John Doe, subscriber assigned IP address 172.2.51.244 title?  Because IF you settled anonymously, you would be settling as John Doe, subscriber assigned IP address 172.2.51.244, and not as the John Doe Defendant having had many IP addresses leased to him.  Thus, Strike 3 Holdings, LLC could easily take your $12,000 settlement payment, say thank you, and then sue you again under a different “John Doe, subscriber assigned IP address [SOMETHING ELSE]” for this same set of movies allegedly downloaded.  If you settled anonymously, your attorney would have ‘unwittingly’ opened you up to this problem, because John Doe subscriber assigned IP address X is a different fictitious legal entity than John Doe subscriber assigned IP address Y.  This sounds like semantics, but buyer beware.

      In sum, beware of the settlement factory attorney who tries to convince you to settle the claims against you “anonymously.”

      Strike 3 Holdings anonymous settlement “price gouging.”

      Further, Strike 3 Holdings anonymous settlements give the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys an opportunity to price gouge their settlement prices.  Why?  Because an attorney who comes to them asking them to settle anonymously (without disclosing to Strike 3 Holdings the identity of the defendant) prompts the Strike 3 Holdings attorney to inquire why that defendant wants to settle anonymously.  “What does he have to hide?,” they ask.  Immediately upon learning that the accused defendant wants to settle anonymously, they recognize that the defense attorney has lost all leverage in negotiating the settlement price, and they’ll “spike” the cost of the settlement.  “Anonymous settlements come at a price,” they may say.

      strike-3-holdings-anonymous-settlement

      Attorneys Advocating “Anonymous Settlements” are Deceiving You.

      Thus, it is important to understand the mechanics of a settlement before jumping to ask for an anonymous settlement.  What most accused Strike 3 Holdings defendants do not realize is that the settlements ARE ALREADY ANONYMOUS [with minimal tweaking] without the defendant having to ask for it.  A diligent attorney will negotiate a confidentiality clause into the settlement agreement (or strengthen one that is already in their boilerplate settlement agreement) to prevent their attorneys from disclosing the identity of the defendant with anyone.  This means that your attorney can (and should) put your name in the settlement agreement itself.  This avoids the entire John Doe, subscriber assigned IP address [SOMETHING] issue, because it is actually the real person (not the fictitious John Doe legal entity having a particular IP address) who is settling.

      Rather than taking the effort to actually negotiate the terms of the agreement, your settlement factory attorney will try to convince you that you won’t suffer if you try to settle anonymously.  This not only alleviates them of the need to negotiate the terms of the agreement, but it also allows them to use their “turn key” boilerplate e-mails, which the plaintiff attorneys (who have already agreed to a pre-arranged inflated settlement price) already know and recognize, so that they can ‘spike’ the settlement amount, gouge the settling defendant, and charge higher prices.  I won’t go into the dishonest attorney issue, kickbacks, etc., as I have written about these issues before.

      Once an accused Strike 3 Holdings defendant realizes that it is okay to allow his attorney to put his name in the settlement agreement, at that point, the Strike 3 Holdings settlement agreement itself covers 1) ALL PAST ACTS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT regarding 2) ALL OF STRIKE 3 HOLDING’S TITLES, and based on the wording of the CONFIDENTIALITY CLAUSE in the agreement the settlement truly becomes a “Strike 3 Holdings anonymous settlement.”  Let’s look into this one level deeper, just to be sure that we have also solved the other ‘slick tricks’ Strike 3 Holdings lawsuits have built into their cases.

      1) “ALL PAST ACTS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT”

      Because the settlement agreement containing the name of the accused defendant (and not the so-called ‘anonymous’ fictitious John Doe entity), the settlement will cover “ALL PAST ACTS OF COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT.”  This means that the settlement will cover even those downloads that Strike 3 Holdings, LLC purposefully “left out” from the list of infringements filed with the lawsuit.  Further, the Strike 3 Holdings settlement agreement WILL EVEN THOSE DOWNLOADS MADE BY A “John Doe, subscriber assigned IP address” HAVING AN IP ADDRESS WHICH IS DIFFERENT FROM THE “John Doe, subscriber assigned IP address” IMPLICATED AS THE DEFENDANT IN THIS CASE.  In other words, by negotiating the terms of a Strike 3 Holdings settlement, but having the confidentiality clause protect the client’s identity, the settlement agreement having the client’s real name on it will not only be a true Strike 3 Holdings anonymous settlement, but it will also cover any other fictitious “John Doe” entity that could have downloaded any of Strike 3 Holdings movies, ever.

      2) “ALL OF STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS’ TITLES”

      Strike 3 Holdings settlement agreements used to be very specific as to which specific Strike 3 Holdings titles were being settled, and the settlement used to cover ONLY THOSE TITLES and no other titles allegedly downloaded.  This was back when the Patrick Collins, Inc. v. John Does 1-1000 cases were still being filed.  Immediately we recognized that this limitation of the scope of the agreement to ONLY THOSE KNOWN TITLES DOWNLOADED exposed the client to multiple lawsuits for 1) Strike 3 Holdings movie titles that Strike 3 Holdings ‘slickly’ left out of their list, or 2) Strike 3 Holdings titles which their investigators missed.  Thus today, when we negotiate a Strike 3 Holdings settlement, the settlement necessarily includes ALL PAST ACTS of copyright infringement FOR ALL OF STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS’ MOVIES.

      In sum, when dealing with a copyright troll such as Strike 3 Holdings, LLC, and you see that they do something innocuous such as changing the lawsuit names from “Strike 3 Holdings, LLC v. John Doe” to “Strike 3 Holdings, LLC v. John Doe subscriber assigned IP address 214.42.955.8,” realize that THEY HAVE DONE THIS FOR A REASON.

        VIXEN – Not to be confused with a rock band, clothing line.

        strike-3-holdings-anonymous-settlement-vixen-blacked-tushy-deeper

        If you are here looking for VIXEN GROUP videos, you came to the wrong place. BUT *PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ THIS BEFORE CONTINUING TO YOUR VIXEN ADULT FILM VIDEO*. Vixen, along with Tushy, Blacked, and “Deeper.” are all website porn brands belonging to Strike 3 Holdings, LLC.

        If you are looking for the Vixen music band – the all-female rock band from the 80’s. They can be found at VixenOfficial.com.

        The Vixen Music Band also has a Vixen All-Female Rock Band Facebook Page.

        MICHELINE PITT, HER CLOTHING LINE, AND RAINN

        On the topic of VIXEN PORN VIDEOS, there is a woman named Micheline Pitt who started a clothing line (more on this in a second). Pornography videos often scenes of abuse, sexual assault, or even rape, and I am happy to see that she is taking a stand against these.

        Micheline Pitt has started a campaign #VIXENNOTAVICTIM to bring awareness to survivors of sexual assault, rape, and abuse. For every piece of clothing that you purchase, Micheline Pitt will donate 30%-40% (or more) to RAINN to help survivors and prevent sexual violence.

        If you came here looking for Vixen porn, I am not “guilting you” into buying her clothing or making a contribution to RAINN (the “Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network”), but yeah — if you are providing clicks and ad revenue to the porn industry, at least spend a few dollars balancing things out and donating to RAINN or buying Micheline Pitt’s clothing.

        Just so it is said, Micheline Pitt’s website sells an interesting line of clothing called “VIXEN BY MICHELINE PITT,” which has “GOOD THINGS FOR BAD GIRLS – SIZES XS – 4X.” Her clothing lines include “PET SEMATARY,” “THIS IS HALLOWEEN,” “FLORAL AFFAIR,” and probably a number of others that I have not seen.

        In short, if you are watching Vixen porn videos, put some balance into the world and donate money or buy products which benefit those who are hurt and who have their lives ruined by the porn industry.

        WHERE TO FIND LEGAL AND LEGITIMATE VIXEN PORN VIDEOS

        If you are actually looking for Vixen porn videos (e.g., VIXEN GROUP adult film videos related to the Vixen Blacked, Tushy, and Deeper. brand names), you do not need to go to illegal sources which can get you sued.

        If you are looking for the VIXEN GROUP, the “legal” and legitimate source of the Vixen porn videos which will not get you sued, then click here.

        Vixen porn videos (along with the Tushy, Blacked, and “Deeper.” porn video brands) all belong to the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC copyright troll company. I am the owner of the Cashman Law Firm, PLLC and the TorrentLawyer.com website. I have been watching being getting sued almost daily for viewing these adult film videos since March, 2017.

        So please, do not become a victim of Strike 3 Holdings by downloading their Vixen, Blacked, Tushy, or Deeper. branded films… NOT from illegal sources (where you can provide them ad revenue), and NOT from legal sources by paying for their content.

        HOW DO THOSE WHO WATCH VIXEN PORN VIDEOS GET CAUGHT AND SUED?

        Those who watch porn videos usually get caught by downloading the videos using bittorrent software. “Tushy,” “Blacked,” and now “Deeper.” are all video brands owned by Strike 3 Holdings, LLC, and can be found [think, were LEAKED AND ARE MONITORED BY COPYRIGHT TROLLS] on the bittorrent websites.

        I don’t care which software you use: Bittorrent, uTorrent, Transmission, Vuze (Azurus), or any other software that uses BitTorrent.

        You visit a website, whether it is 1137x.to (or 1337x.gd), The Pirate Bay, or any other website that allows you to browse adult film torrents and download Vixen mp4 xxx files, you click on a link, and open up your bittorrent software and download the Vixen mp4 xxx movies. THAT is how you get caught downloding their porn videos.

        WHAT ABOUT THE TUBE WEBSITES WHERE I CAN STREAM VIXEN PORN VIDEOS?

        For many years, I was of the opinion that you would not get sued for viewing porn videos using the YouTube-like websites.

        Vixen porn videos (along with Tushy, Blacked, and “Deeper.” branded videos) are illegally shared on the internet using YouTube-like websites. I do not need to name them, because no doubt you can find them.

        Notably, however, are the Pornhub lawsuits where users using the Pornhub.com website to view Vixen, Tushy, or Blacked films were exposed and sued for copyright infringement.

        [I learned about in the context of analyzing whether someone can get caught for using the Kodi software, and more specifically, whether someone can get sued for putting Kodi software on an Amazon Firestick.]

        CAUGHT (MONITORED) BUT NOT SUED

        I believed that you could get caught watching porn videos [like Blacked, Tushy, Deeper., etc.] either through a plaintiff attorney sending a subpoena to Google Analytics, Cloudfront, or any other website plug-in company that tracks the IP address and activities of users who visit their site (be careful what trackers your Tube-like porn streaming sites use).

        However, once the plaintiff attorney gets the list of IP addresses of the Blacked porn site viewers, the plaintiff attorneys then needed to take the extra inconvenient step of filing one or more copyright infringement lawsuit in federal courts against “John Doe” defendants (the Blacked porn video viewers) who were assigned that particular IP address at that date and time.

        They would ask the court for “Expedited Discovery” (FRCP Rule 26), and then they would send subpoenas to Internet Service Providers (ISPs) forcing them to hand over the identities of their subscribers who viewed the Blacked or Tushy videos — their IP addresses would be the ones they were assigned on the dates and time they viewed or streamed the Blacked / Tushy / Vixen videos. Those porn video viewers would receive ISP Subpoena Notification Letters letting them know that they have been sued as a “John Doe” defendant in their copyright infringement lawsuit.

        Once the plaintiff attorney received the Blacked / Tushy / Vixen website visitor’s identities (which really were merely the account holders’ identities) from their ISPs, only then can the adult film Copyright Trolls (Strike 3 Holdings, LLC) begin to engage in the extortion portion of what is an elaborate settlement extortion scheme (settle for thousands or dollars or else we will NAME AND SERVE you in the federal court lawsuit).

        TECHNOLOGY ADVANCES AND LEGAL LOOPHOLES MADE MONITORING VIXEN PORN VIEWERS’ ACTIVITIES POSSIBLE.

        Creative plaintiff attorneys have found loopholes in the legal system to shortcut the “Expedited Discovery” two-step method of obtaining the identities of Vixen porn video watchers who visited a website and exposed their IP address causing them to be caught and sued.

        Instead of suing for copyright infringement in the federal courts, they sue in state courts (such as the Miami-Dade, Florida county court, the Maricopa, Arizona county court, or even St. Clair, Illinois county court). They sue using quasi-legal theories, such as equity or Bill of Discovery, and they ask the state or county court to reveal the identity of those accused of viewing, streaming, or downloading their client’s copyrighted videos.

        With the Blacked / Tushy / Vixen adult videos, VIXEN GROUP’s own Florida attorneys — Rachel Walker & Tyler Mamone — engaged in this kind of state-based lawsuit with their Miami-Dade County, Florida Bill of Discovery Strike 3 Holdings, LLC lawsuits. This is an ongoing problem for those who viewed or streamed Vixen, Tushy, Blacked, or most recently, “Deeper.” videos without a license.

        Kerry Culpepper of Culpepper IP (who appears to represent the conglomerate of movie companies who sue defendants for the copyright infringement of their lawsuits) skirted the federal courts as well. Culpepper did this by suing accused downloaders and exposing their identities using Hawaii’s Rule 512(h) rules.

        Most recently, Culpepper sent subpoenas to Cloudfront to determine which IP addresses viewed his movie clients’ films without a license.

        ADDICTION TO PORNOGRAPHY HELPLINES

        Nobody likes to talk about this topic, but it if nobody mentions it, you as the adult film viewer might not be aware of the problem.

        There *is* such thing as having an addition to pornography. Major sources have spoken about pornography addiction (albeit in a boring, medical kind of way), and popular groups such as Reddit’s “No-Fap” Support Group has been a great way to speak to others about what you might be going through.

        Other more formal groups include “Sexaholics Anonymous” (sa.org) or “Recoveries Anonymous” (r-a.org).

        As soon as you start spending losing hours at your computer viewing adult film websites, you might have a problem. Once your adult film viewing habits start interfering with your work and your everyday life (e.g., effects from lack of sleep, or relationship problems and the like), you might have a problem.

        Bottom line, pornography addiction is essentially a dopamine addiction where the affected person seeks a “dopamine high” which they get from pornography. It must be noted that other activities, e.g., running, sex, relationships, parenting, movies, etc. also provide dopamine highs as well.

        If you suspect you might need help for such a pornography addiction, then by all means, reach out to one of these groups. For privacy purposes, I might just create a fake account on reddit.com so that I can get help without pasting my name everywhere on my posts, but the official groups are set up to preserve your privacy and your anonymity as well.

        IN SUMMARY:

        OK, so you came here looking for Blacked / Tushy / Vixen pornography videos. I hope I have given you a few things to think about along the way.

        As an attorney and the owner of the Cashman Law Firm, PLLC, I support my family by representing clients who are sued by copyright trolls. This being said, if I could save you from being my client by NOT being sued in the first place, I would be just as happy with the result.

        If I could inspire you to take actions to heal the damage that pornography viewing causes — either through getting help through Reddit’s Pornography Addiction resources, by buying clothing and supporting companies like VIXEN BY MICHELINE PITT, or by outright making donations to RAINN (the “Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network”), you will help to take a stand against sexual abuse, sexual assault, or even rape.

        Lastly, no doubt YOU YOURSELF might not engage in these acts and your adult film viewing habits might be innocent, you cannot deny that there are others that watch pornography, and act out the abuse, sex acts, or rapes on those around them, willing or not.

        Whether it is the adult films (the pornography) which is to blame or those who engage in violent acts against others, by watching pornography YOU MUST CONSIDER that you give financial benefit (in the form of power, ad revenue, and sometimes outright cash) to the pornography industry by watching porn videos, legal or not.

        What you do with this information is up to you. Let’s hope you never need my services as an attorney.

          Strike 3 Holdings Attorneys and their personalities.

          strike-3-holdings-anonymous-settlement

          Why knowing which Strike 3 Holdings attorneys are filing the lawsuit against you is relevant to your case.

          Strike 3 Holdings attorneys work together as cogs in a wheel to run what our Cashman Law Firm LLC calls a “quasi-legitimate settlement extortion scheme.” As far as the public is concerned, each Strike 3 Holdings attorney appears to work independently and appears to have autonomy to make decisions on how to run the copyright infringement cases federal court cases. However, based on my observations, there are attorneys who have authority to direct their own cases, and there are attorneys who appear to read scripts to accused defendants and file boilerplate documents in the federal courts when moving their cookie-cutter lawsuits against hundreds of John Doe defendants through the federal court system.

          Strike 3 Holdings attorneys come in two flavors.

          Strike 3 Holdings attorneys appear to come in two flavors:

          “Bosses”: There are Strike 3 Holdings attorney “bosses” (which are attorneys who have been running the settlement extortion scheme and the lawsuits for years now).

          “Underlings”: There are Strike 3 Holdings attorneys which are “underlings” (which are newer attorneys who have been hired by Strike 3 to be a “warm body” in a federal court.

          While I understand that in all cases, the more experienced Strike 3 attorneys appear to control the lawsuits, albeit “in the shadows.” I wrote about this in the article, “Strike 3 Holdings Attorneys in Miami-Dade County, Florida Have a ‘Behind the Scenes Shadow'” article in January, 2020).

          The former “boss” of all of the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys was Lincoln Bandlow.

          For many years, Lincoln Bandlow (formerly of Fox Rothschild LLP) ran each and every Strike 3 Holdings, LLC lawsuit filed across the US. I understand that his network used to be separated into “teams” of attorneys, although which Strike 3 Holdings attorneys were on what “team” remains unknown to me.

          My best guess is that each team was presumably separated by region — each geographic area of the US had a different “team”; although I would not be shocked if the “teams” were separated by hierarchy (like a pyramid). This way, those with decision-making power would be on one team, and those “underlings” who are merely reading scripts and following orders are in another team.

          Why I think Strike 3 Holdings LLC now has multiple bosses.

          Interestingly enough, as of May, 2019, I no longer think that there is one “boss” or “kingpin” running all of the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC lawsuits, but TWO. In May, 2019, I started to notice that the wrong Strike 3 Holdings attorneys were listed on the various court filings across the US. One of their Strike 3 Holdings attorneys would be listed as the attorney-of-record, but another attorney would be the one handling the case.

          What was more interesting is that while Lincoln Bandlow [originally] was running everything, I noticed that a growing select number of attorneys [like Jacqueline James (Jackie James)] exerted authority over their cases in the form of making on-the-spot decisions where in the past, they would need to always “consult their client” and get back to me (meaning, they would check with Lincoln to get his authority or permission to agree to something I was pushing for a particular client of mine).

          I noticed the same thing with John Atkin, who first worked for Fox Rothschild LLP (apparently as an “underling”) handling their New Jersey cases. But then, John Atkin left Fox Rothschild LLP and formed his own law firm, “The Atkin Firm, LLC.” That same day, based on my interactions with him, he began to manage his cases as if he were a “boss,” making decisions on-the-spot and deciding the direction of his own cases.

          I discussed this shake-up of Strike 3 Holdings attorneys in an article that even one year later is still an interesting read because the players are still the same people.

          I created this page so that you can look up the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys who sued you so that you can know their personality.

          For now, I am creating this page with the intention of identifying which Strike 3 Holdings attorneys are operating in which states, so that [over time; I will edit this page again with updates] you will be able to come back here and look up the attorney who sued you in your home state’s federal court.

          A Quick Note About Strike 3 Holdings State-Based Lawsuits (and why I think they will be filing in Arizona next).

          NOTEWORTHY SIDE COMMENT: Since 2019, Strike 3 Holdings attorneys have also been suing defendants in state and county courts, such as the Miami-Dade County, Florida court. These lawsuits are NOT copyright infringement lawsuits, and no claims are asserted against each John Doe Defendant implicated in their lawsuits. However, because the threat is that “we will identify the accused infringer and sue him or her in the federal court in which he lives,” (my quote referring to them, not their actual words), these state-based Bill of Discovery lawsuits are concerning because they expose each possible defendant to Strike 3 Holdings and their forced-settlement extortion scheme.

          This is not the first time a copyright troll such as Strike 3 Holdings, LLC tried this tactic of suing defendants in state courts under that state’s Bill of Discovery laws. Other former prolific copyright trolls have sued defendants in Maricopa County, Arizona as well as Miami-Dade, FL. [Arizona is where Strike 3 will probably be going next once they exhaust the “Miami-Dade Bill of Discovery” lawsuit campaign they have been running since late 2019].

          List of Strike 3 Holdings Attorneys by State

          Here is a list of Strike 3 Holdings attorneys for each state in which they are currently suing defendants:

          Miami-Dade County, Florida
          There are two known Strike 3 Holdings attorneys in Miami-Dade, Florida. Rachel Walker, and Tyler Mamone. In January, 2020, I wrote that Rachel Walker and Tyler Mamone were not the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys with apparent authority to decide the fate of each accused John Doe defendant, but rather, Lincoln Bandlow was the one apparently running the cases behind the scenes.

          More recently, it appears to me as if these Strike 3 Holdings attorneys *are* running the Miami-Dade, Florida cases, but where a defendant lives in a different location, e.g., they live in New York or Connecticut where Jackie James is “in charge” of that region, the case is handed off to Jackie James, and so on.

          For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the currently open Miami-Dade County Strike 3 Holdings cases:

          Local Case Numbers (open cases): 2020-016660-CC-05, 2020-016669-CC-05, 2020-016577-CC-05, 2020-014518-CC-05, 2020-014520-CC-05, 2020-014481-CC-05, 2020-012478-CC-05, 2020-011743-CC-05, 2020-011744-CC-05, 2020-011499-CC-05, 2020-009492-CC-05, 2020-009491-CC-05, 2020-009493-CC-05, 2020-005388-CC-05, 2020-003890-CC-05, 2020-003891-CC-05, 2020-003737-CC-05, 2020-002968-CC-05, 2020-002019-CC-05, 2020-002021-CC-05, 2020-001616-CC-05, 2019-032919-CC-05, 2019-032825-CC-05, 2019-026368-CC-05, 2019-024647-CC-05.

          California
          California Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Lincoln Bandlow of Bandlow Law.

          As you have read above, Lincoln Bandlow used to work for Fox Rothschild, LLP, where he ran all of the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys and their cases across the US. But since the shake-up May, 2019, he left Fox Rothschild, LLP and started his own law firm.

          I still think that Lincoln is behind the scenes running each of the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC cases filed across the US, but I no longer think he has sole authority and decision-making power. I believe that John Atkin (NJ) and Jackie James (NY/CT) also have similar power and authority.

          For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the newly filed Strike 3 Holdings California cases:

          CALIFORNIA STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LLC CASES (7/2020 – 8/2020)

          Strike 3 Holdings California Southern District Court

          Strike 3 Holdings, LLC v. John Doe subscriber assigned IP address 76.176.167.14 (Case No. 3:20-cv-01325)

          …Interestingly, not much going on in the California Southern District Court.

          Connecticut
          Connecticut Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Jacqueline M. James (Jackie James) of The James Law Firm, PLLC.

          Jacqueline James used to represent Malibu Media, LLC, another prolific copyright troll. Jackie was in charge of all of the Malibu Media, LLC cases filed in the New York federal courts.

          I consider Jacqueline James to be a “boss” when categorizing her among the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys in the hierarchy.

          Jaqueline James at one point was an important attorney filing many cases for Malibu Media, LLC. She even stayed with them after there was a shake-up of Malibu Media, LLC attorneys, but then one day she stopped filing for them.

          It is important to note that Jackie James stopped representing Malibu Media, LLC because she dropped them as a client. She did not “swing from one branch to the next” by dropping one client in favor of a more profitable one. When she dropped Malibu Media, LLC as a client, she did not have another client.

          It was only later that [I presume] Strike 3 Holdings contacted her and asked her to file copyright infringement lawsuits on their behalf.

          Today, she appears to have independent authority and control of her cases, and she is in charge of the Strike 3 Holdings federal court lawsuits filed in New York and more recently, in Connecticut.

          When negotiating cases, Jackie James is known to be a difficult negotiator, but she is also fair. Be prepared to support everything you say with facts and if needed, documentation. Jackie James is the kind of attorney who does not simply take statements at face value, but she asks questions and follow-up questions… often which lead to uncomfortable conversations. Again, however, she is not known to gouge on settlement prices, but she is a tough in her approach.

          For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the newly filed Strike 3 Holdings Connecticut cases:

          Strike 3 Holdings, LLC v. Doe (Case Nos. 3:20-cv-01157, 3:20-cv-00961, and 3:20-cv-00960)

          …These are newer cases, and the judge has not yet been assigned for these. I’m guessing Jackie James will be the plaintiff attorney in each of these.

          UPDATE: I am happy to share that while searching for Dawn Sciarrino (when writing up the Virginia cases), I could not understand why she would take Strike 3 Holdings, LLC as a client. However, searching for her, I found that Jackie James actually listed her as an attorney under her law firm. While I will post Dawn’s page under her state, because her we are discussing Jackie, you can find Jacqueline James’ profile and website here.

          New Jersey
          New Jersey Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by John Atkin of The Atkin Firm, LLC.

          John Atkin used to work for Fox Rothschild, LLP in New Jersey. John Atkin was the only one of the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys handling all of the New Jersey Strike 3 Holdings filings, however, at the time in which he was with Fox Rothschild, LLP, I did not get the sense that he had authority to negotiate the cases himself. Rather, it appeared as if he was local counsel filing cases for Lincoln Bandlow.

          That changed in/around May, 2019. As you have read above, in my observation, John Atkin overthrew Lincoln Bandlow’s authority and carved out autonomy for himself among the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys in the hierarchy. By May, 2019, he already left Fox Rothschild, LLP and started his own law firm. I learned about this when I started seeing “The Atkin Firm, LLC” on the cases in which I was representing clients rather than Fox Rothschild, LLP.

          I still think that Lincoln might still be the “boss” of the various Strike 3 Holdings attorneys across the US along with the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC cases, but it appears to me as if John Atkin is working on his own (maybe as a co-equal boss with Lincoln Bandlow and/or Jackie James), with sole authority and decision-making power over his cases.

          For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the newly filed Strike 3 Holdings New Jersey cases:

          *NOTES TO SELF: There are TWO IMPORTANT reasons why Strike 3 Holdings, LLC is putting so much money into filing lawsuits in New Jersey:

          1) Strike 3 Holdings, LLC almost lost New Jersey as a state in which they would be allowed by the federal court to sue defendants (for lawyers, it was bad case law). For a short while, judges stood up to Strike 3 Holdings, LLC and stopped them from being allowed to send subpoenas to ISPs to force the ISPs to hand over the subscriber information to them.

          Apparently Strike 3 won that battle, so now they are taking advantage of that “WIN” and suing many defendants in New Jersey.

          2) The plaintiff attorney for each of these New Jersey cases is John Atkin of the Atkin Firm, LLC. There is a history WHY John Atkin is important to New Jersey, and that history is uncovered by understanding WHAT HAPPENED with the shake-up of attorneys last year.

          Maryland
          Maryland Strike 3 Holdings cases used to be run by Jessica Haire of Fox Rothschild, LLP, but more recently, they are run by Elsy Marleni Ramos Velasquez of Clark Hill PLC.

          Let’s cover Jessica Haire first.

          Pre-May, 2019.

          The first time I spoke to Jessica Haire was in March, 2018. She and Lincoln Bandlow were colleagues at Fox Rothschild, LLP and were working together on managing the Strike 3 Holdings attorneys and the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC cases. At the time, whenever I would message Lincoln Bandlow, Jessica Haire would often respond back to me on his behalf.

          It is interesting to note, however, that when Lincoln Bandlow left Fox Rothschild, LLP, Jessica Haire continued to work for them. I believe she is still working for them today.

          Post-May, 2019:

          Elsy Marleni Ramos Velasquez of Clark Hill PLC (“Elsy Velasquez”) is the name of the Strike 3 Holdings attorney who is showing up for the current slew of Strike 3 filings in Maryland District Court. She showed up as a new attorney filing lawsuits for Strike 3 Holdings, LLC [if I recall correctly] shortly after Lincoln Bandlow left Fox Rothschild, LLP and started his new law firm.

          She works out of Clark Hill PLC, and she works out of their Washington, DC office.

          The first time I contacted Elsy Velasquez was in May, 2019 because she was the attorney that was taking over the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC Maryland cases after the shake-up of their attorneys.

          It is important to note that after a hiatus of filings (probably due to the pandemic), Strike 3 Holdings, LLC has put a lot of faith in Elsy Velasquez by allowing her to file many cases on their behalf.

          For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the newly filed Strike 3 Holdings Maryland cases:

          MARYLAND STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LLC CASES (7/2020 – 8/2020)

          Strike 3 Holdings Maryland District Court

          Strike 3 Holdings, LLC v.

          *NOTES TO SELF: It is important to note that Strike 3 Holdings appears to be putting A LOT of money and resources into filing lawsuits in Maryland.

          …The logic is that each of these defendants has money to pay a large settlement to them, or else they wouldn’t file the lawsuit against them.

          Also interesting is that EVERY ONE of these Maryland cases were filed on ONE DAY — AUGUST 6TH, 2020.

          Pennsylvania
          Pennsylvania Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Jason M. Saruya of Clark Hill PLC.

          Jason Saruya of Clark Hill PLC is the name of the attorney who is showing up for the Strike 3 filings in Pennsylvania District Court.

          He works for Clark Hill PLC, and he works out of the Philadephia, PA office.

          There is not much information about Jason Saruya, but from what I understand, he is a younger attorney, and he is probably working with Elsy Velasquez as his superior, as Elsy Velasquez was the attorney from Clark Hill PLC that took over the Strike 3 Holdings, LLC Maryland cases after the shake-up of their attorneys.

          For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the newly filed Strike 3 Holdings Pennsylvania cases:

          PENNSYLVANIA STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LLC CASES (7/2020 – 8/2020)

          Pennsylvania Middle District Court*

          Strike 3 Holdings, LLC v. John Doe subscriber assigned IP address 174.55.82.15 (Case No. 1:20-cv-01322)
          …v. John Doe subscriber assigned IP address 73.130.61.38 (Case No. 1:20-cv-01324)
          …v. John Doe subscriber assigned IP address 71.58.204.183 (Case No. 1:20-cv-01323)

          [*NOTE TO SELF: It is interesting that they are filing against defendants in the Pennsylvania MIDDLE District Court, and *NOT* in the Pennsylvania EASTERN District Court (where 99% of copyright troll litigation over the years happens there). I do not have a reason why this is the case.]

          Virginia
          Virginia Strike 3 Holdings cases are run by Dawn Marie Sciarrino of Sciarrino & Shubert, PLLC (more recently, I have found that she is working for Jacqueline James, the Strike 3 Holdings attorney for the NY/CT region).

          Dawn Marie Sciarrino is the name of the attorney who is showing up for the Strike 3 filings in the Virginia federal court filings.

          MY ORIGINAL WRITE-UP ON DAWN:
          Dawn Marie appears to be a partner in her law firm, and she works out of Centreville, VA.

          There is not much information about Dawn Marie Sciarrino (even their https://www.sciarrino.com website was down when I tried to reach it).

          From what I understand, she has been practicing as an attorney for many years. Her first bar was in New York in 1991, and she has represented clients before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit and for the District of Columbia Circut.

          What I do not understand is… [with her background, both educational and vocational] why in the world would she take Strike 3 Holdings, LLC as a client? This makes no sense to me.

          UPDATED INFORMATION:
          Doing further research, I was very surprised to see that Dawn Sciarrino was listed as an attorney in Jackie James’ website.

          Understanding Jackie James’ background and her experience, the connection between Jackie and Dawn became clear. They know each other. It was likely Jackie who suggested that Dawn take the Virginia cases because Strike 3 Holdings, LLC needed an attorney to file lawsuits in the Virginia federal courts against those Miami-Dade Strike 3 Holdings defendants who did not settle the claims against them.

          For the moment, it is noteworthy to list the newly filed Strike 3 Holdings Virginia cases:

          VIRGINIA STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS LLC CASES (7/2020 – 8/2020)

          Virginia Eastern District Court

          Strike 3 Holdings, LLC v. Doe (Case Nos. 1:20-cv-00825, 1:20-cv-00823, and 1:20-cv-00824.)

          It is now 8/21/2020, 8:30am CDT, and I have written up what I could find on the current list of Strike 3 Holdings attorneys and their Strike 3 Holdings, LLC cases filed both in Miami-Dade, and in the federal courts. Obviously more cases are filed each day, so I will do what I can to keep it current. Also in this article, I am using a new coding feature (new for me, at least) called Shortcodes.
