In a weekend blitz, Malibu Media has filed 36 Bittorrent lawsuits in Illinois, New York, and Connecticut between July 20 and 24. Illinois alone accounted for 17 lawsuits, while there were 10 filed in New York and 9 in Connecticut.
Unfortunately, bulk filings like these are typical for the Plaintiff, with similar allegations for each suit. Despite similar filings, each suit is potentially worth thousands of dollars in damages. This year has seen an explosive growth in new suits filed from Malibu Media and there seems to be no sign of slowing.
