Belly Up: West Coast Productions Completely Dismissed

It’s over.  Yesterday, Dunlap, Grubb & Weaver (“DGW”) dismissed every single Doe Defendant in the long-delayed case of West Coast Productions v. Does 1-5829, 1:11-cv-00057-CKK.  This after months of DGW requesting extension after extension in this case, saying they “need more time” to identify the defendants before they can name anyone in this case.  Well when Judge Kollar-Kotelly finally gave DGW the Order to put up or shut up, DGW decided to bail on the case. This begs the question: did DGW ever intend to sue anyone in this case in the first place, or was this just a transparent attempt to treat the Court like a tool in its collection efforts?

To all those that settled this matter before the case was dismissed, I truly understand the frustration you must be feeling at this time.  To all those who were or are being threatened yet not named in the case, you may contact me or a lawyer in your area for a discussion about your options going forward in this or similar matters.
