In Re ELH-14-CV-1683

Yesterday, I mailed my Amended Complaint in the Hoge v. Schmalfeldt copyright infringement lawsuit to the Clerk of the Court. It is now posted on PACER.

The Amended Complaint speaks for itself, so I do not plan to have any further substantive comment on its contents.

    • Figure it out for yourself, Cousin Bill. Our legal system is adversarial, meaning that your opponent doesn’t have to do what you demand, unless the court tells them to.

      You play with the adults, you play by adult rules…we are unimpressed by your temper tantrums.

    • “all of a sudden”?? seriously?

      Twinkie was the only person who, for some inane reason, felt Hoge would’ve filed an infringement suit without the proper registration to begin with…

      just because Twinkie is stupid enough to file LOLsuits without anything to back them up doesn’t mean everyone else is…


    • Notice the confusion between “need,” “want,” and deserve.

      What would be delicious (though probably counter-factual) is if Mr. Hoge had not initially done the paperwork properly but filed a timely cure because of Bill’s bloviating. Hysterical. Unfortunately that is probably wishful thinking.

    • Actually, no. The first job of the court in a copyright infringement cal aim is to establish copyright. If the court grants Hoge the copyright, questions about the copyright or off topic for bill.

  1. The Elkridge Horror is about to find out that the cheese is binding!

    It seems Pennsylvania is going to take an interest in the Horror’s extortion of a resident. Bad news for Billy on two fronts.

  2. A thing of beauty. And proves that Bill really doesn’t know how to read the law. I also loved how he knew, just knew with 100% certainty, that no copyright registrations had been filed.

    He’s now going to misread the law about the time frame for registration, and probably accuse you of perjury in this amended pleading to boot.

  3. you know, I think part of the problem with Twinkie’s increasingly belligerent attitude is that most of us trust that (regardless of what twinkie thinks) our esteemed hose doesn’t knowingly lie.

    We trust this because, over time, we’ve seen how his statements aren’t proven to be knowingly false, so we have good reason to assume he will be as honest in future posts as he has been in the past.

    That’s how it works in the real world. Once one has shown themselves to be trustworthy (or not as in Twinkie’s case) is generally safe to continue trust (or not, as in Twinkie’s case) till proven wrong.

    THIS I think irritates the hell out of Cabin Boy, NO one in their right mind believes anything he says till it’s backed up by other more reputable sources, and that is his own fault.
    It seems to gall him something fierce that no matter how much doubt he attempts to cast on Hoge’s side of anything, no one here takes him seriously as a matter of course.
