I spoke to a lawyer and was given my options, he is very confident that if I am taken to court he can succesfully handle this case. I can't suggest what you should do but your first consult with a lawyer is free. Just keep reading up on what the status is of the ongoing cases, the PACER website is direct info from the chicago courts. He has so many cases that if he were to litigate each one in the proper jurisdiction he will potentially spend more than he can make unless he can be certain to get the win. And not to mention after all the music lawsuits there is public record of how most cases were capped at $3000 unless there were huges abuses so even if he is able to win the chances of paying more than he is asking for as a settlement is slim to none and I will bet is where he got his figures from for the settlement.
