Nice. Is there a summary of this case somewhere other than Pacer? Where did the bond requirement come from?

This is an order by the presiding judge not liking the antics of the copyright lawyer.  It wasn't the first time he got nailed.

I am not sure I would say the plaintiff is getting all they can handle.  Plaintiff  might not care or even know.

However, plaintiff’s attorney has major problems and, to probably nobody’s surprise, that attorney is Richard Liebowitz.  The ruling on this motion is quite extraordinary.  It shows a few things.

1.  That judge appears to be on a growing list of judges who do not like Richard  Liebowitz. 

2.  Opposing attorneys would be smart to file similar motions in every one of his cases.   Requiring him or his clients to post a bond is a big hassle and might even cause some of his clients to hesitate to litigate.

3.  At some point, attorneys working for The Liebowitz Law Firm may question that decision.   

I am reading a rather long motion for attorneys fees against one of Liebowitz’s clients.    If he loses it and the defendant gets even one half of the amount they are requesting, it will certainly make news.  I will post a note about it when I am done reading it and the reply.

Even if I am a lawyer, I am not your lawyer.  Copyright matters can have serious consequences.  If you have assets worth protecting, consult a lawyer who is familiar with copyright law and who can review the facts of your case. If you cannot afford one, call your state or county bar association.

I'm a non-lawyer but not legally ignorant either. Under the 1st Amendment, I have the right to post facts & opinions using rhetorical hyperbole, colloquialisms, metaphors, parody, snark, or epithets. Under Section 230 of CDA, I'm only responsible for posts I write, not what others write.
