If you’ve recently discovered you’re being sued by Strike 3 Holdings, don’t delay taking action. When you receive a subpoena from Strike 3 Holdings and a notice from your internet service provider, it’s important you take action as soon as possible to avoid your name being publicly tied to court documents or more severe penalties.
Strike 3 Holdings has filed federal cases for years, but their recent focus in Florida has been discussed widely and many are unsure how these cases differ from a typical federal filing. Each lawsuit is unique, but even if your case was filed in Florida instead of federal court, you should take it just as seriously.
A recent Bloomberg article explained Strike 3’s shift from solely filing federal cases to filing several cases in Florida.
“Strike 3 opened the new chapter in its playbook last fall, when it began filing cases in Miami-Dade County. So far the company has filed more than 40 such complaints, which can be several hundred pages long and include a series of IP addresses that have been used to download films. Miami-Dade judges have signed off on subpoenas.
Florida is where Strike 3 says its “infringement detection servers” are located. The state also has a procedure that allows complaints for a “pure bill of discovery.” In other words, the complaints don’t ask for money—only a court order that such internet providers as Verizon Wireless and Comcast Corp. reveal the subscriber.”

In your case, you can choose to settle anonymously, file a motion to quash, or fight your case in court. While filing a motion to quash has been considered by some as a solution to Florida cases, it may not protect you from a federal filing down the line.
