"Presiding judge apparently isn't prepared to offer any sympathy"

switched 'Crossley recently decided to drop 26 file-sharing cases, supposedly because he endured "death threats and bomb threats."' by Warren Riddle

'Andrew Crossley, the manager of the law firm ACS:Law, made a concerted effort last year to individually punish purported file-sharers. The dismissive Crossley learned a painful and public lesson in hubris, though, when agitated Web vigilantes launched 'Operation Payback is a B****' and specifically targeted the law firm. After having suffered site attacks, network hacks, leaked confidential information and government investigations, ACS:Law has apparently succumbed to the disruptive pirate pressure.'
