A trial date has been set in the matter of Andy Lehrer vs easyDNS. Recall, this is the case where we were presented with a takedown request for some pages on causepimps.ca. We responded that “we don’t do that unless you have a legal basis, like a court order”, and then he went and sued both our customer and us.
Unless we get dropped (or have a judge strike us from) the suit before then, looks like we’re going to trial on March 30th, 2015 at 10:02am. Bring popcorn.
PDF of Lawsuit Deleted From Scribd
Also, we noticed when we looked back at the Update on Andy Lehrer vs easyDNS post that the PDF of the lawsuit hosted on Scribd had been deleted. Scribd support confirmed to us that it had been removed in response to a complaint filed earlier this week (but like many abuse desks, their policies prohibit them from telling us who complained). We have rectified the basis for the takedown and re-uploaded the PDF of the lawsuit. We have also placed a copy of it on our own servers in case something, you know, happens to the new version on Scribd.
UPDATE: Scribd deleted the document because Mr. Lehrer complained that his signature was unredacted. Mr. Lehrer says he just wanted the signature redacted, not the entire document taken down. The updated document has that. That the signature was unredacted in our original post was an oversight which we corrected as soon as we became aware. Sorry about that. (However, that said, it is a public document and can be obtained in unredacted form by anybody).
