Prenda Law Claims Its Winding Down Its Operations; Very Angry About Having To Pay Bond
from the keep-trying dept
With Judge Otis Wright telling Team Prenda to pay significantly more on the bond to cover Morgan Pietz's legal fees in the big case in California where Prenda got called out for what the judge suggested were racketeering violations, Paul Duffy and Prenda are fighting back in typical fashion. They've gone to the appeals court to whine about why they shouldn't have to pay, why Pietz shouldn't get any money and about all the reasons they think Judge Wright is wrong. But there's also an interesting tidbit in Duffy's affidavit:
Prenda Law is currently winding down its operations and is in the process of dismissing its remaining cases pursuant to the instructions of its clients.
It later says that Prenda Law has not filed any new copyright infringement cases in several months. Of course, this completely ignores the fact that Duffy and what appears to be basically the same crew of people immediately flipped the switch to a new firm, called the Anti-Piracy Law Group, which has continued to do the same basic shakedown game, even as they were being hit with sanctions and more for the same game under the Prenda label. Funny how Duffy leaves that part out...
