  1. I am an attorney on in New York and I recently had a Malibu Media troll case dismissed. A friend who I know from a karate class was sued. Not surprisingly, we chose to fight.

    I am a trial attorney and not an intellectual property lawyer. But I think that worked to my advantage. Anyone who has spent a minute on my website or spends anytime in the local courts knows I’d rather hard day in court than an easy day in the office. When I met the troll attorney in Federal Court she started making technical arguments and my response was, “Okay, let’s try this case”. She was dumbfounded (rare for a lawyer). Like most “litigators” she could not get a document into evidence with a GPS.

    I got her to show weaknesses in her case and then went back to the office. I tapped the great talents on an under-30 lawyer on my staff and my IT guy. We put together a discovery demand that showed we were thinking trial. Then we provided evidence that my client actually had a tenant during the time of their bogus claim.

    She voluntarily dismissed the case immediately. I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed slaying that paper Goliath. Cases like these are why we go to law school.

    • Thank you for sharing your story. Except for a few cases, trolls drop any Doe who doesn’t silently pay but communicates intention to fight instead. Trolls are not different from school bullies in this respect: scum and cowards.

  2. Evidently, defendants get lawyers and still somehow settle. Perhaps the terms are much better when a defendant gets a lawyer. I would not even discuss settlement. Personally, I would rather fight to the end, even if I had to take a loss on my time. To me, its an abuse of our court system. You are either part of the problem or part of the solution.

    • The plaintiff is the one bringing the suit. If they dismiss the case, there is nothing left to litigate. Unless the defendant’s lawyer is able to bring a viable counter-claim, there is nothing left for the defendant to do after the plaintiff dismisses the claim. That is not the same as settling.
