Team Prenda Loses In Default Judgment; Ruling Clearly Names Steele, Duffy And Hansmseier As Prenda Law
from the and-another-arrow-comes-in dept
As noted in the supporting memorandum, AF Holdings has been found to be an alias of Prenda Law, Inc. and its principals -- John Steele, Paul Duffy and Paul Hansmeier.Steele and Hansmeier keep trying to claim they have absolutely nothing to do with Prenda, and Steele argues that he's got nothing to do with AF Holdings. Having more courts officially note that AF Holding is really Prenda, and Prenda really is Steele, Duffy and Hansmeier, is going to make their argument more and more difficult going forward.
Of course, as if on cue, in a different case, Paul Duffy is now arguing strenuously that it's unfair to lump Prenda Law in with Steele and Hansmeier or to connect it with AF Holdings. Of course, sooner or later, Duffy is going to realize that if he keeps making this argument, he's actually hanging himself out to dry, almost certainly leading up to Steele and Hansmeier quickly tossing Duffy under the bus when the opportunity permits (one assumes soon after they're done doing the same to Mark Lutz).
