Prenda Law Lawsuits: Continuation of Steele Hansmeier Lawsuits
« on: February 05, 2012, 12:25:14 AM »
It appears that the folks at Steele-Hansmeier have become Prenda Law. I think how interesting it is that the new law firm avoids the lawyer's names.

In any case, there are a number of lawsuits being listed by the Prenda Law website.

However, we have assembled our own lawsuit document collection on the ELI Document Library on Scribd.

It appears they are trying to embarrass the plaintiffs. In that regard, we are NOT going to list the defendants but focus more on Prenda Law and their exploits.
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.

I know ELI is a bit late to the party but it is still interesting the lessons we can learn in looking back.  It looks like Lawyer John Steele was defeated by an anonymous defendant and subsequently by a judge.  Judges HATE these kinds of cases where it becomes clear the court system is being abused.

Most questions have already been addressed in the forums, get yourself educated before making decisions.

Any advice is strictly that, and anything I may state is based on my opinions, and observations.
