It's seems former RIAA lobbyist Judge Beryl Howell's recent decision that it's fine to lump together a bunch of totally unrelated copyright infringement lawsuits into a single lawsuit is increasingly looking like an outlier. Two more such lawsuits have been rejected by a court, which severed all of the defendants except one in each case, as multiple other courts have done. It's nice to see that multiple courts are rejecting this highly questionable procedure, which is clearly an attempt to abuse the court system as a part of a business model.
