Strike 3 Holdings quietly returned to Federal Court in 2021.

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.

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
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:

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.
