Experience matters. Just settling cases without having ever done any real litigation does not put an attorney in the best position to help you get the best results in settlement. 

In 2016, Attorney Erin Russell, along with her co-counsel Jonathan Phillips, won a Malibu Media case in the Northern District of Illinois. You can read the opinion here. In short, Malibu Media was unable to prove that the defendant downloaded or distributed any of its works, and the judge granted the defendant's motion for summary judgment. By winning at summary judgment, the defendant was able to maintain his anonymity and was able to avoid the costs of a trial. 

The procedural pattern of Malibu Media cases in federal court is very consistent. A complaint is filed against a John Doe defendant. Malibu must then ask the court for permission to send a subpoena to the defendant's Internet Service Provider asking for that person's name and contact information so the case can proceed against that person. After the court gives Malibu permission to send the subpoena, the subpoena is sent. The Internet Service Provider is legally required to notify the defendant that they received a subpoena seeking their information. If you recently got a letter from your Internet Service Provider about a Malibu Media case, this is where you are in the case.
