These lawyers who proclaim they are "first amendment warriors" like Randazza and Wohlman are only following the path of Ken White - fight only for the first amendment when it's politically expedient and any position that contradicts your political leanings is ineligible.

That's not really true unless Randazza is actually a neo-Nazi.

He is even dumber than he looks, and he looks really fucking dumb.

This is how you know they haven't read the filings.

Saying "Vic is a sex pest" might not be defamatory. But saying Vic, on this specific date, at this specific event, lured me to this specific hotel room and specifically tried to rape me, when he never did that is sure as fuck defamatory.

I doubt that beetle-browed fuck can read.

Marc Whipple wasn't confident that he'd hit his $500 goal in 30 days that he extended his campaign by an additional 7 days when Kickstarter offered it to everyone. The reason he's using Kickstarter is to raise money to pay for the cover art.

This is the girl he paid to voice his catgirl character. Her performance isn't part of any audiobook though.

Might want to be careful posting audio from Sabat's casting sessions.

Not gonna PL here, but I know Wolman and Randazza well enough to know this wasn’t a money play. I don’t know if it’s better or worse that they genuinely wanted to help Low T.
I think they saw the SCV and wanted to stick it to the evil KKK for free because Douchette would totally get his crowdfunding off the ground and/or the court would award them fees.

I doubt they would've litigated for free.

It literally was, though. They were filing in the Northern District of California specifically to take advantage of case law in that district and circuit which allowed fee shifting under § 512(f), which only the Northern District of California has ever effectively enforced (in Lenz v. Universal and a case involving corrupt voting machine manufacturer Diebold).

Had they succeeded, they'd have been paid both by the defendant and with whatever money came in from the GFM.

There's no way this wasn't a money play and it was even nakedly so.

To be more clear, I mean that I don’t think they helped Low T for GFM donations. For a settlement, sure.

I think they wanted to strengthen 512(f) jurisprudence, too, at least as a side effect. Doing that would cut down a lot on frivolous DMCA striking behavior. If a false DMCA strike had even a slight chance of coming back to bite you hard, abusive companies would have to reconsider their shotgun strategy.

This wasn't a particularly good case for pushing that, though, and if they had honest intentions they would have tried it in North Carolina federal court, because winning there would actually expand jurisprudence on that kind of fee shifting. Do it in three places and it begins to look like a trend.

Reminder: Admission to the Texas State Bar without an examination generally takes approximately three to four months, but the board has up to 270 days to complete its investigation. T. Greg's application was submitted 261 days ago and the deadline for a decision is due by April 8th. He amended his application to include his lawsuit against Dropbox in December and isn't sure if that reset the clock.

We're done!

Earlier today, I submitted my application to the Texas Board of Law Examiners – 2 days ahead of the 7-day deadline I promised you ☺

With your help, we raised $1,265.00 for this project, which worked out to $1,210.20 after GoFundMe's fees. That got spent as follows:
==> $910.28 to the Texas Board of Law Examiners ($890.00 to the BLE, $20.28 to the Texas.gov payment processor)
==> $25.00 to the National Conference of Bar Examiners (for my MPRE scores)
==> $5.00 to the NC Supreme Court (for a Certificate of Good Standing)
==> $120.00 donated to charity (an Indiana family that needed help making their insurance premiums)

There's still $149.92 in the account that I'm holding in case the TBLE tells me I've missed something; if not, it will get donated during our next charity drive.

I'm closing out the GFM now that everything's done, so unfortunately I won't be able to send you an update through here on whether they accept my application or not because state law gives them 240 days to investigate. Keep an eye on my Twitter feed though, because I'll announce the results at the bottom of this thread on our progress:

*THANK YOU* as always for your support, I won't let you down

I'm not sure how much they'd look into the merits of that, if at all. The jurisdictional argument was ludicrous but the lawsuit itself wasn't patently frivolous, so I don't think it would have any effect.

Is he really going to try to use this to harass vic, ty and others?

I really hope he does. I really, really do. He's the kind of farthuffer who would not be able to contain himself when he knows he's getting attention that he believes is positive.

edit: he did say he may be closing his practice soon, even temporarily. So is he doing this outside of his legal practice?
