Malibu Media in Illinois
According to Law360 “An Illinois federal judge has handed Malibu Media a rare summary judgment defeat, dismissing a case in which the litigious porn studio accused opposing counsel of working in tandem with ‘a fanatical Internet hate group.’” This decision was handed down by U.S. Magistrate Judge Geraldine Soat Brown after Malibu Media accused the lead defense attorney of being “in bed with anti-copyright extremists.”
