  1. We have been hearing from a number of Sunlust Pictures, LLC lawsuits lately. The number of defendants seem to be on the low side for each, but Prenda is hitting these cases quite hard. A lot of people are getting repeat phone calls and “scare” letters regarding the Sunlust cases, so I am posting them here.

    CASES FILED BY PAUL DUFFY IN THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS:
    Sunlust Pictures, LLC v. Does 1-75 (Case No. 1:12-cv-01546)

    CASES FILED BY JOSEPH PEREA IN THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA:
    Sunlust Pictures, LLC v. Does 1-120 (Case No. 1:12-cv-20920)

    CASES FILED BY DOUGLAS M. MCINTYRE IN THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF TEXAS:
    Sunlust Pictures, LLC v. Does 1-75 (Case No. 4:12-cv-00695)

    CASES FILED BY TIMOTHY V. ANDERSON OF ANDERSON & ASSOCIATES IN THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
    Sunlust Pictures, LLC v. John Doe (Case No. 1:12-cv-00656)

    FYI, it does not matter whether the lawsuits are filed by Paul Duffy, by Joseph Perea (who last I check is no longer working for Prenda, so the attorney name is wrong on this case), by Tim Anderson (still local counsel for Prenda Law Inc.), or Doug McIntyre (who as far as I am concerned will be replaced by another attorney here in Texas soon, as he has taken on his own copyright infringement cases which puts him in competition with his so-called “employers” at Prenda); the lawsuits are all still following the textbook “copyright troll” lawsuit model.

  2. In the Colorado case this is the most recent event:

    MOTION to Continue Scheduling/Pretrial Conference by Plaintiff Sunlust Pictures, LLC. (Anderson, Timothy) (Entered: 07/26/2012)

    This is after a motion to name Mr. Cisa as defendant.

    Do they really intend to have a trial here? Or is this just a way to prolong things even more?

    1. They obviously want you to think they want to go to trial, but in my opinion, this might be a bit of posturing. Copyright infringement lawsuits are QUITE EXPENSIVE even to get through discovery (even moreso to get past a summary judgement hearing and onto a trial). I suspect this might settle out, unless Mr. Cisa is interested in a good fight (which, by the way, might cause them to release him from liability if they see he will actually cost him more than they’re willing to pay in legal fees). It’s all a game of chess, and who is willing to go past the other person’s comfort zone.

  3. After sitting for over a month and a half Jude Tafoya finally granted the motion to amend the complaint by Sunlust pictures in the CO case. She does so even after admitting that the plaintiff did not attach an amended complaint and that they have until the 21st to do so. She only allows this because the changes are not “substantive” . What happens now? Is there a difference between being named and actually being served/summoned?
