is understandably angry. In his motion to dismiss Discount Video Center v. Does 1-29
) on behalf of one of the Does
, he explains why. This time I don’t want to summarize the motion for an unusual reason: I think of the summary as a spoiler — and I want everyone to read this document from the first to the last paragraph.
