Will a Motion to Quash the Subpoena Help?
The materials you received in the Notice from your ISP of a subpoena being sought includes a right to challenge the release of information such as your name and your address. The letter may inform you that you have a certain deadline to seek a “Motion to Quash the Subpoena” or to seek a “protective order.”

What is a Protective Order?
A protective Order is either a Motion you file with the Court, (or sometimes the other party will agree and “stipulate” to a protective order). In the context of illegal internet movie downloading, the protective order would be filed if needed to protect the Defendants name and address (the John Doe Defendant), from being made publicly known. When this happens, the potential for a “shame settlement” (whether a defendant is guilty or not) becomes greater. So it is always best to seek a protective order if you need it.
Why you should hire a California Law Firm if you are sued in California?
We are one of the few Torrent Defense law firms located in the state of California. We have offices in Santa Monica (covering the Los Angeles region) and in San Diego (covering La Jolla, Del Mar, Carlsbad and Oceanside areas) and another office in San Francisco (covering San Jose, the Bay Area, Silicon Valley and East Bay area. We also have an office in Phoenix, Arizona (covering Scottsdale, Phoenix, Tempe, and other areas in Maricopa County) and an office in Newport Beach (covering Laguna Beach, Huntington, Dana Point, Costa Mesa and Orange County).
If you are sued in California and the opposing counsel seeks your defense counsel is from, let's say Texas, or Florida, or New Jersey, Strike 3 Holdings counsel may tend to get a little more aggressive than they would normally be in seeking a higher settlement amount simply because they know your counsel may not be willing to FLY IN, PAY TRAVEL COSTS, HOTEL COSTS, and LITIGATE THE CASE in California or Arizona where we are licensed to practice. Before you hire a Strike 3 defense attorney, ask them about this.
Standard for seeking early discovery (before Rule 26(f) "meet and confer" process.

Another issue which frequently comes up is a subscribers "internet subscriber release date." We can help you with that. However, it is important to understand what "early discovery" is and we show you in this video:
District courts in the Ninth Circuit apply a three-factor test for determining whether good cause exists to allow for expedited discovery to identify certain defendants. Columbia Ins. Co. v. seescandy.com, 185 F.R.D. 573, 578-80 (N.D. Cal. 1999).
First, the plaintiff should "identify the missing party with sufficient specificity such that the Court can determine that the defendant is a real person or entity who could be sued in federal court."
Second, the plaintiff must describe "all previous steps taken to locate the elusive defendant" to ensure that plaintiff has made a good faith effort to identify the defendant.
Third, plaintiff should establish that its lawsuit could withstand a motion to dismiss.
