Mr. Crowell is a resourceful troll, just like John Steele who was also known to threaten laypeople with bogus criminal charges.
Presented here are only few of Crowell’s sleazy tactics. There is a lot more douchebaggery going on. For example, recently Crowell overscumbagged Steele by asking the court to authorize pre-discovery depositions of unrepresented defendants. Needless to say, it is a grave mistake to agree to be deposed by a crook without an attorney, no better than talking to the police.
Re: Re: frivolously crying slander should be a form of slander
What libelslander are you talking about? I think of this motion as a form of flattery and a validation that my humble effort was not in vain.
On a serious note, of course they can inflict a ton of damage by a mere fact of suing me (even if suing critics for defamation is always an uphill battle, to put it charitably), but on the other hand, discovery is a two-way street... Mutual Assured Distraction.
Good catch! This misspelling could be deliberate: someone typosquatted my domain name a while ago (which I regard as a flattery), redirecting fightcopyrightrolls (with one "t") to a copyright maximalist blog Trichordist.
The most shocking discovery for me was the fact that The Sunday Times is a paywalled paper. Apparently there are many people out there who are not only happy to submissively open their skulls to be brainwashed, but also eager to pay for the bleach.
Tim, this is a very good research and an excellent summary, yet IMO you missed one interesting development involving this "plaintiff" — Leaverson v Killer Joe Nevada appeal pending in the 8th Circuit (see DieTrollDie's post).
What's interesting about this appeal is that the Darren Griffin fraud is brought up, and this issue will hopefully get more deserved traction.
(For those who are not aware, in 2012/2013 Guardaley/Voltage filed around 200 declarations signed by some Darren Griffin, a person who most certainly never existed — on behalf of a fake "Crystal Bay Corporation." This is a Prenda grade shit...)
