There have been so many "heavy" discussions on Linda's case against me. I thought it might be entertaining to see who can make the best predictions on the outcome of my case.

Here are some things to try to predict.

1.  Will Linda show up to the hearing?
2.  Who will accompany her?  John Jolin, Husband, Brother, Daughter, Attorney, and/or other friend?
3.  Will Linda push forward on her very weak case and continue to come after me or will she gracefully drop the case before it begins?
4.  Will the hearing be an easy win or will it be a hard-fought one?
5.  Will the hearing last 30 minutes, 1 hours, 90 minutes, 2 or more hours?
6.  Given the unpredictable nature of some judges and courts, who do you think will prevail, Linda or me?
7.  Do you think Linda can pull a surprise upset against me? If so, how and why?
8.  How do you think Linda will conduct herself? Professionally or emotionally? Knowledgeable or play dumb?  Calm or angry?

Let me and everyone else know what you think.  We have less than 3 days to get all the predictions in.  Let's see who in the ELI Community will be the best predictor of the outcome of the case.

4.  Will the hearing be an easy win or will it be a hard-fought one? easy peasy
5.  Will the hearing last 30 minutes, 1 hours, 90 minutes, 2 or more hours? 2 or more hours
6.  Given the unpredictable nature of some judges and courts, who do you think will prevail, Linda or me? Cult Leader
7.  Do you think Linda can pull a surprise upset against me? If so, how and why? nope...
8.  How do you think Linda will conduct herself? Professionally or emotionally? Knowledgeable or play dumb?  Calm or angry? she'll be completely flustered and unorganized, will trip over her own tongue...hell she can't even recite that shitty poem without reading it, after 15 years?!

I'm fairly certain it's perfectly legal to stand on the sidewalk outside of a government building and snap pictures of people as they exit...being in public there is no expectation of privacy, so a model release would not be needed to profit off any images....just say'in

We know Ms Ellis from her poem, her demand letters, some online postings and her letters to Linda.
You sort of get a "flavor" for what she's like, but I'm sure that there's more to her than that.
I feel like this is going to be like an episode of the late Steve Irwin's nature show.
"Oi, mate... wut a specimen!!  Look at dat shoiny coat, and dem piercing oies!!  She's an aggressive one, mate!!"
"I'm gonna shove me thumb up its butthole, and dat's goina really piss it off".

1) She'll show up because she's overconfident, and she needs this to keep her scam going.
2) She's going to bring a hoard of assholes with her.
3) She'll push forward.  She feels that feeling frustrated and upset equals some sort of stalking.
4) It will be pretty straight-forward.  But, I suspect that the judge will have to repeatedly intervene to keep her focused on the facts.
5) I give this two hours.  This hearing won't stay afloat on hearsay.  Her having nothing compelling as proof, it won't get much momentum.
6) Matt's going to come out on top.
7) Ms Ellis will start out professional, but start to go to pieces as a last resort.  Gotta flap that "broken wing", you know.

I envision something along these lines...she won't get her way and throw some sort of hissy fit...



I hope for her sake she doesn't show up over medicated or drunk... this is happening damn close to a full moon too..

Based on what Matthew and Oscar have shared with us about the defense, here are my answers:

1.  Will Linda show up to the hearing?

Linda will show up with her attorney, her husband, and her daughter.  She will go out of her way to show that she is avoiding Matthew.  At this point, I can't see her being strong and presenting her own case although she filed the TRO pro se.  If she presents the case herself it will be a gift to Matthew and it will take away from the victim image she tries so hard to portray.  Even if she wants to drop the case, I think she has to show up at this point.


2.  Who will accompany her?  John Jolin, Husband, Brother, Daughter, Attorney, and/or other friend?
Again, attorney, husband, daughter.


3.  Will Linda push forward on her very weak case and continue to come after me or will she gracefully drop the case before it begins?

I keep going back and forth.  I think she will move forward with her case.


4.  Will the hearing be an easy win or will it be a hard-fought one?
Medium to hard.  The judge is no nonsense.  He will be put each party on the spot.  The Judge probably goes into these hearings with 4-5 things he is looking for and will be fairly directive to get the answers to his questions.   He will probably have some questions for Matthew that Matthew has not anticipated but Matthew has all of the facts down so well that Matthew will react well on his feet.  The hearing will be uncomfortable but Matthew will win and may get a double win.


5.  Will the hearing last 30 minutes, 1 hours, 90 minutes, 2 or more hours?
One hour and thirty seven minutes plus whatever time the judge needs to read the documents Matthew is presenting.


6.  Given the unpredictable nature of some judges and courts, who do you think will prevail, Linda or me?
Matthew on all counts.


7.  Do you think Linda can pull a surprise upset against me? If so, how and why?
I just don't see it in the facts.  The only way I see this is if the Judge decides to punt on this, award the case to Linda to err on the side of "protection" and then an appeals court turns it over.  But the Judge's profile makes it seem like he isn't one to punt on things.   I do think Linda will produce a bunch of emails from her "frans".


8.  How do you think Linda will conduct herself? Professionally or emotionally? Knowledgeable or play dumb?  Calm or angry?

She has spent her whole life hiding behind a mask and certainly her whole professional career.   She will be mostly professional with a healthy dose of "scared victim" and "scared Mom" but do it fairly calmly.  She will over simplify everything.  The biggest chance of her coming apart is is if Matthew has to cross examine her daughter (be careful there, no need to bully her or do anything except prove you haven't contacted her daughter) or if during Matthew's cross examination of Linda, he goes deeper into her past behaviors and her trolling scheme than she likes.  There will be tears.  Mostly you will see St. Linda that shows up for interviews she has that act down pretty good.

That is one of the funniest videos ever.   We can only dream that Linda would behave this way.

Okay I'll play. I especially want to win the pool on how long it will last:

1.  Will Linda show up to the hearing?
Yes, for sure.

2.  Who will accompany her?  John Jolin, Husband, Brother, Daughter, Attorney, and/or other friend?
She'll have an associate (like Jolin) and probably an attorney

3.  Will Linda push forward on her very weak case and continue to come after me or will she gracefully drop the case before it begins?
Pretty sure she'll go all in. She has a history of not changing her mind until it is too late.

4.  Will the hearing be an easy win or will it be a hard-fought one?
I believe it is pretty clear and in hindsight it will be an easy win for Matthew.

5.  Will the hearing last 30 minutes, 1 hours, 90 minutes, 2 or more hours?
I'm definitely going for the under. I doubt this will last an hour. I'm going with 48 minutes.

6.  Given the unpredictable nature of some judges and courts, who do you think will prevail, Linda or me?
No question it will be Matt.

7.  Do you think Linda can pull a surprise upset against me? If so, how and why?
I have had only one experience in court (I was actually just supporting a buddy of mine). The person that had sued him actually produced forged documents that my friend had never seen or signed. He complained to the judge. The judge admonished the plaintiff that forgery had serious consequences. The guy insisted that they were real. The judge looked at them closely and decided they were real. My friend lost that one. So experiencing that does make me have doubts about the judicial system.

8.  How do you think Linda will conduct herself? Professionally or emotionally? Knowledgeable or play dumb?  Calm or angry?
I think she will just play the victim at every chance. There was some interest in question to ask Linda at some point here. Personally I think Matthew should do his best to not address Linda but speak to and through the judge as much as possible.

I wanna play too.

1.  Will Linda show up to the hearing?
     Not if she's smart.  So yes.

2.  Who will accompany her?  John Jolin, Husband, Brother, Daughter, Attorney, and/or other friend?
     She will try to play the judge with the presence of her attorney, Jolin, husband, and all the family and friends she can muster in an attempt to show what a wonderful person she is.

3.  Will Linda push forward on her very weak case and continue to come after me or will she gracefully drop the case before it begins?
     She's already proven she is not a quitter even when dead wrong.  (Oops, I used the "Dead" word. But it isn't meant as a threat.)

4.  Will the hearing be an easy win or will it be a hard-fought one?
     She'll try to make a fight out of it, but you'll come away with just a caution about keeping the forum from threatening or demeaning connotations.

5.  Will the hearing last 30 minutes, 1 hours, 90 minutes, 2 or more hours?
     Closer to 30 minutes.

6.  Given the unpredictable nature of some judges and courts, who do you think will prevail, Linda or me?
     You, our hero!

7.  Do you think Linda can pull a surprise upset against me? If so, how and why?
     She likely has a card up her sleeve, but it's a deuce. Likely it will be figures of how much income she has lost; And maybe how much sleep she has lost in fear of her life.

8.  How do you think Linda will conduct herself? Professionally or emotionally? Knowledgeable or play dumb?  Calm or angry?
     If she has acting skills they will come out for the judge to see. Sweetness, Innocence, feeling extremely violated and financially drained.

Interesting discussion.
I kind of laughed at how folks are guessing a lower duration while trying not to going over. lol.

The judge will have to listen to some arguments, as part of his due diligence.
Ms Ellis' major problem is that Matt didn't do anything that would actually qualify as stalking in the word of law.
There's no smoking gun, and that's a huge hurdle to overcome.
The more that she has to skirt the fact that there's no real evidence, any other arguments that she makes will actually weaken her position little by little.

These types of things have to be taken seriously by the system.
Both for the protection of alleged victims, but also to ensure that innocents don't end up with something like this on public record.

It's also pretty clear that she has a ulterior motive here, of which there's plenty of evidence.
I don't think that copyright trolls will ever be able stop discussion of their practices.
The really aggressive, acerbic types such as Riddick and Ellis eventually burn out.
10 infringements for a million dollars?  Can't I get something from the extra value menu and at least get a free pop?  Jesus Christ.
