For many years, the IRS filings from Brett Kimberlin’s Justice Through Music Project showed a lawyer named Jeffery Cohen as Executive Director. This post about Dread Pirate #BrettKimberlin’s Boss’ Day Job ran eleven years ago today. A SWATting threat was posted in its comment section.

Court records show an email address for a Jeffrey R. Cohen who has the same street address as Justice Through Music Project. That email address is associated with the law firm of Millen, White, Zellano & Branigan. The firm’s web site gives this information about Mr. Cohen:
Our entertainment practice focuses on music, film and television. Because of our intellectual property expertise, we understand not only the finer points of contract terms but also the significance of the intellectual property issues at hand. Jeff Cohen heads this practice group. Jeff owns Sumerian Records and is a partner in an entertainment management company Outerloop Management.

Bill Schmalfeldt spent the next several years unsuccessfully trying to prove that he wasn’t the source of the SWATting threat.
