Paul Hansmeier Dismisses Case That His 'Client' Claims Was Filed Without Her Permission
from the about time dept
So, remember how Paul Hansmeier’s latest scheme has been to file a bunch of cases against small businesses, claiming their websites violated the Americans with Disabilities Act? The same lawyer who is getting slammed by courts all over the country for his shady copyright trolling practices appeared to be up to a new form of trolling — a view that was strongly supported when one of the plaintiffs in one of these ADA cases, Lily Poss, claimed that she had “no idea” that Hansmeier was filing lawsuits on her behalf. That’s a major no-no by a lawyer already very deep in trouble. And it took all of about a day for Hansmeier to file to dismiss the case in which he “represented” Poss — though he did so “without prejudice,” meaning that the case could potentially be refiled again in the future.
Update: And… another one’s gone too.
