Anti-Pirate Law Firm Succumbs to Coordinated Hacker Assault
According to the Telegraph, Crossley recently decided to drop 26 file-sharing cases, supposedly because he endured "death threats and bomb threats." London's Metropolitan Police, however, expressed "no knowledge of any bomb threat against Mr. Crossley or ACS:Law." It might also be purely coincidental, but the chances for Crossley's success in court also began to seem suspiciously and increasingly slim. Because of apparently "weak" evidence, a judge told Crossley, "I am getting the impression with every twist and turn since I started looking at these cases that there is a desire to avoid any judicial scrutiny." So, before you start feeling sorry for poor Mr. Crossley and his beleaguered firm, just remember, the presiding judge apparently isn't prepared to offer any sympathy.
