AF HOLDINGS, LLC

I have added this page for internet users who have been entangled in the AF Holdings, LLC cases.  The goal here is to keep up to date on this plaintiff, and to discuss their various cases.  Should you learn of any updates regarding one of their cases, please post it here using the following format — (e.g., “AF Holdings, LLC v. John Doe  (Case No. 1:12-cv-03564) filed in the U.S. District Court for the Nortern District of Illinois“).  Please also feel free to post new cases you find on the http://www.rfcexpress.com website where AF Holdings, LLC is listed as the plaintiff.

Remember to please exercise discretion when posting (e.g., do not post your real name or e-mail address), and as usual, avoid using vulgar or offensive language (both towards the plaintiff and towards other users).

    1. SJD, Nicholas Ranallo blew the gates open last year (here is a link to TorrentFreak’s article also written by him), but I am shocked that nothing has been done about this since. In short, it’s the elephant in the room. Wait for a named client to file an answer — this is something that should (and will) come out in discovery.

  1. My assistant has compiled a list of AF Holdings, LLC cases (current as of 7/16/2012).

  3. I had my assistant compile the following list. These defendants have been named [but not yet served] in the Eastern District of Michigan. I am sad to say that for this court [in this jurisdiction with Jonathan Tappan (a.k.a. Brett Gibbs; see below) as Steele’s local counsel] I expect this will change. Please keep me up to date if you hear anything:

    AF Holdings LLC v. Michael M. (Case no. 4:12-cv-14443)

    NOTE: A snippet about Tappan from SJD’s site

    “A couple interesting things worth noting about copyright troll Jonathan W. Tappan’s recent Michigan filings:

    Although he doesn’t identify himself as working for or with Prenda and uses a local Michigan address, the email address and phone number he used belong to Brett Gibbs. I just checked the Michigan bar registration and wasn’t surprised to discover that Tappan has been licensed for only four years. More importantly, Brett Gibbs is not licensed there. If he is going to be handling these Michigan cases, he is practicing law without a license in MI.”
