IN RE STRIKE 3 HOLDINGS, LLC, CASES
Order of the Court
“Review of the above-captioned actions reveals they are all related under this Court's Local Rule 123. The listed actions involve the same or similar parties, properties, claims, events, and/or questions of fact or law. Accordingly, assignment of the actions to the same district judge and magistrate judge will promote convenience, efficiency, and economy for the Court and parties.
An order relating cases under this Court's Local Rule 123 merely assigns them to the same district judge and magistrate judge, and no consolidation of cases is effected.
On the basis of good cause, this Court ORDERS that the above-captioned actions are reassigned to U.S. District Judge Morrison C. England, Jr., and U.S. Magistrate Judge Gregory G. Hollows with a new number to be assigned by the clerk.”
All future filings shall denote the reassignment to U.S. District Judge England and U.S. Magistrate Judge Hollows by replacing the trailing initials on each case number with: MCE-GGH.
IT IS SO ORDERED
By Judge Morrison England
What to do if involved in a torrent lawsuit?
- Call a law firm FIRST before ever calling the opposing attorney (they may be recording the call, taking notes, and “spinning” the details of the conversation. We offer a free initial consultation for those who received a subpoena.
- Preserve all evidence. You don't want to be called out for evidence “spoliation” this can seriously harm your case if it ends up going to court
- We can help you determine WHEN the movies were allegedly downloaded (perhaps you were out of town and can prove it), this would help to know.
- We can help you explore potential defenses
- We can explore whether a motion to quash the subpoena makes sense (ex. if you live in Arizona and were sued in the Northern District of California for example).
