Dunlap, Grubb & Weaver


I suggest anyone who is contacted by Dunlap’s goons remind them about their boss’ shenanigans. Dunlap is heavily engaged in politics, even employs the chairman of Richmond GOP Cortland C. Putbrese, and the last thing he wants is publicity. If he persists with harassing calls, I have no problem reviving the scandal. Friendship with Kenneth Ford is also something they want to keep under cover.

  1. So rfcexpress says DGW filed an am ended complaint, anyone with a PACER or knowledge of this case care to tell us what that means?

    • Yeah I just noticed that too. I know it means they changed their complaint against us does, but, what is the new complaint? >.>

  2. Okay, so I was putting this off for a while and started thinking about it again, and started to get very very worried. I was wondering how the whole ‘naming you as a defendant’ thing works. If they name you, does that mean they now have jurisdiction over you?
    And how are you guys seeing whether or not they have jurisdiction in my state?


        • I received a letter wanting me to settle by July 18th and I ignored it. They called once and left a message since I hadn’t paid. I just ignored that too and haven’t heard anything else.

  3. No news is good news… Hopefully.

    I stopped getting phone calls btw. So that brings the grand total to one letter adn three phone calls.
    Not exactly the relentless extortion shakedown others have experienced.

    • I only received one letter and one phone call. Hoping that will be the last I hear from them, but with them having until November 20th, you never know.

  4. i paid them $2500 and they called me again asking for more money…am starting to get piss off already..am not paying anymore and am ready to go to court for this fucking money that i did not download at all…

  5. Anyone with this case here?

    Celestial Inc. v. Does 1-252

    I received a letter from this a long while back, well actually comcast delivered it to me saying they (celestial) would get my name and info from comcast if i didn’t respond by june 1 2012. I didn’t do anything, now recently I get the same letter saying I need to respond by dec 5th 2012.

    Why didn’t they act after the first notice, it’s like I’m getting a second chance now. I still won’t do anything as they are probably bluffing.

    They are in Florida and I am in california.

    • I too am in the same boat (received the second notice) and am confused. Is this going anywhere, or ignore, its been over a year already since my IP address was recorded.

  6. Someone Please tell me where is Celestial Vs Doe-378 at?? even my attorney didnt even contact me yet.. so the case is over thrown or what??

  7. Just got my 2nd Doe-378 letter yesterday so they are acoming . Can’t wait till they try and sue me from the state of Florida and Iam 1800 miles north lol

      • Regarding the Nu Image 1-3,932 case, the plaintiffs had until 11/20 to either serve defendants or ask for an extension. It looks as though they have not filed an extension….at least from what I can see. They may have served defendants and we don’t know. If neither occurred, my understanding is that the court will throw out the case……eventually…..

  8. Celestial Vs. Does 378 was granted an extension until the end of December to get things going. I saw that they sent out new subpoenas to the District court of NJ (Where Comcast is located). Funny thing is, in document 120, I see that they accidentally signed as Nu Image. Is this something we can use? The copyright holder is Lethal Hardcore, pseud. of Celestial, Inc.. Nu Image is also not listed in the interested parties documents. Reading through the documents, I see that the plaintiff states that they cause no undue hardship by delaying default summary without prejudice. What about the fact that they are just throwing sphagetti against the wall to see what sticks? So they try to subpoena from FL, now NJ, does this mean they have the other 92 districts to try their subpoena? Why is the magistrate not dismissing this for district reasons? BTW, some of OUR lawyers are also making out like bandits. Seriously, go to the FAQ page, get a RECAP and PACER account and you can follow along for free. I bought some documents too – so they are uploaded to the free archive.

  9. I just got the first letter today from Comcast about Nu Image v does, saying I have until dec 27 before Comcast turns over our contact information. What is everyone doing about this and how much are lawyers charging to quash/ dismiss this thing. I need to know lol my girlfriends mom is tripping about this lawsuit saying she’s going to tell them I downloaded movies and shit hahaha. Can anything happen in the future if you just ignore the whole thing completely even after they get your contact info and ask for settlement. I live in Jacksonville but the court is in ft Myers, ain’t no way I’m going out there. Can it ever come down to jail time lol?

      • If the account holder is in your girlfriend’s family, it may be of benefit to talk to them politely. From what’s been seen in other trolling situations, when Doe account holder makes an accusation about another person to the trolls, they still get bothered by the trolls, for “negligence” instead of direct infringement.

        If the account holder needs further guidance in fighting the trolls, experienced anti-troll information or lawyer guidance will help. Saying “he did it-I didn’t” has created more instead of less trouble for many Does.

        A Doe trying to shift the allegation seems to end up just giving the trolls multiple targets for the same allegation. Remind the account holder’s that usually nothing good and much bad can come from talking directly to the trolls.

        There are posts here and at DTD about why it’s best either not to speak to the trolls, or to give a brief scripted response. DTD has one scripted response. The basic idea is to avoid giving trolls information, which they will use to extract a settlement without care about innocence.

        You can truthfully tell the account holders that this trolling is a racket, that trolls have acted badly and dragged thousands of non-infringers in. The trolls have used shady tactics with weak evidence in many or most cases.

        Disclaimer: This post is not to be construed as legal advice and is for discussion purposes only.

        DTD’s description includes stages the trolls would have to go through if they were really following up on a case. Put study into the FAQ’s here and at the resource links. It stinks that good people have to use time and energy repelling this stuff.


      • I just got a letter from comcast for Docket #: 2:12-cv-00109 based on a download date of 1/23/2012. I have no idea what this is about. I’ve never seen “conan” nor is that the kind of movie I would watch. WTF is going on here?

  10. Regarding the Nu Image v Does 1-3,932 case (The Mechanic):

    The Plaintiffs filed a motion to extend time to name and/or serve defendants on 12/20/12. The judge subsequently denied this motion on 12/26/12. Good news!

    So what happens next? The Plaintiffs can’t name or serve any add’l defendants…but I can’t see any Motion to Dismiss. Hopefully somebody with more knowledge on this subject than I have can help.

  11. IGNORE THEM! I held onto the subpoena my internet provider sent me in December 2011 for a supposed download in July 2011. Came across this site while seeing if anything ever came of the lawsuit. Nope, I have heard NOTHING since. I believe it was the Mechanic Case of 2011… so for any of you who are new VICTIMS of this frivolous “lawsuit”, you need to just ignore them! My internet provider gave them my info but I never heard from them. Who they contact to try to get money from seems pretty sporadic. As far as I can tell, the case from 2011 was dismissed in June 2012 and it looks like they immediately started up a new lawsuit. Nu Image is paying them, even if they aren’t going to court, so why not keep re-filing? If you get a letter or phone call from them, don’t react. If you do a little research you will see that only a teeny-tiny fraction of these legalized shake-downs ever see court. Don’t sweat it, it will go away.

  12. any other new information about NU IMAGE, INC. v. DOES 1-2,515, Case No. 2:12-cv-109-FtM-29DNF???

    I got a letter from them demanding $2000 and $3000 if not paid by Friday threatening to sue me…

    I did not download such movie or whatever, but I think Comcast played dirty on me since I just had unsubscribed from them, and what you see, BOOM, they sell me off just like that. I DO NOT plan to settle at any cost, but since I’ve been doing some research on this, what could be good defenses??

    Since most of judges don’t care about if it wasn’t the owner the one who did it or had the wi-fi with no password and so forth???

    I just imagine the hilarious thing that would be if these people get the IP from any Court system and demand a subpoena from their ISP… Epic laughter

      • Haha thank you. I don’t know why it choose the same as yours, but thank you anyways. So that means they would not be able to do anything to the Joe defendants?? Problem is they already got my name.

        Anyways thank you, I’ll look into it since they printed their letter on 1-15. I’ll see the twitter status of the lawers when twitter comes back on since it seems they’re having a DoS or something.

        Thanks again

    • You can do what I did. Copy one of the motions to quash, fill in your own john doe information and file it with the court, sending a copy to the plaintiff and to comcast. My case was dismissed after doing this.

  13. So far I looked up on Pacer, actually had to pay for the pages and give my credit card info. But it seems it was dismissed voluntarily on 1/09/2013. I’m talking about case 2:12-cv-109-jes-dnf. Also known as 2:12-cv-00109.


    2:12-cv-00109-JES-DNF Nu Image, Inc. v. Does 1 – 2,515 John E. Steele, presiding Douglas N. Frazier, referral Date filed: 02/29/2012 Date terminated: 01/09/2013 Date of last filing: 01/24/2013

    County: Lee Terminated: 01/09/2013 Origin: 1     Reopened: Lead Case: None Related Case: None Other Court Case: None Defendant Custody Status: Flag: MAIL

  14. Anyone have any idea what the story is behind Studio West Productions Inc. vs. Does 1-14 in PAED? Why is PA such a magnet for these trolls?

  15. Lol you shouldn’t have paid. Now they know you are a mark. I would document the calls, lawyer up, and Sue the pants off of them.

  16. I too was named on the cv-00109 case, and my isp released my information to this troll group. Received 1 letter “requesting” $1900 by Jan 25th 2013, or $3000 by march 1, 2013, ignored it. Just yesterday received a phone call from someone representing this group, wanting their $3000 , told them the person they asked for wasn’t home, and hung up on them.

    Are they just trying to still get money from the people they have names of? Is this case really dismissed or what?

  17. Oh my god. DUNLAPWEAVER (DW) IS A JOKE! They will NEVER take you to trial, it’s all smoke and mirrors to intimidate you! It’s extortion in the Internet age! The courts throw out their cases because DW can’t convince the courts that there is jurisdiction over the defendants. If you ignore them, they will go away! If they contact you, threaten them with a counter suit. Google the case of Shirokov v. Dunlap Grubb & Weaver! They are already being sued for their unethical conduct in violation of Vuitton rules. DON’T PAY THEM A DIME OR EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE THEM!

  18. So I confirmed that the Nu Image 1-3,932 (Mechanic) case is still open! Seriously??? Why did they leave this case open when DGW’s motion to extend time was denied? What can still happen?
