Anderson continues to fish
In my previous post, “A deep sea fishing expedition?“, I wrote about attorney Timothy Anderson receiving permission from the court to depose defendants. The case is AF Holdings, LLC v. John Does 1-4, Case No. 3:12-cv-00055-GEC-BWC, in the Western District of Virginia.
In a new motion, attorney Anderson states that he’s deposed one defendant, and seeks permission to depose another individual based on who he believes to be the true infringer.
Further, the Plaintiff has now conducted a Rule 30 deposition on the IP registered user by the initials of W.L. In that deposition, W.L. provided information to the Plaintiff that leads the Plaintiff to believe that a family member of W.L. who was living at the home of W.L. at the date and time of the infringement may have indeed been the infringer, or at the very least may have pertinent information about the infringement activity. Accordingly, the Plaintiff now seeks to perform a deposition on an individual with the initials Z.L. pursuant to Rule 30 to identify the Doe in this matter.
