After the infamous case of this studio suing Jim Sterling, they are now targeting steam users. How did they do this? Apparently, they sent a subpoena to Valve.
Digital Homicide’s James Romine has filed a subpoena against Valve in Phoenix to discover the identities of what appears to be 100 anonymous users who had made statements about the company in the past. The documents were filed and the subpoena granted this week. The case has been assigned to Magistrate Judge Eileen Willett. Romine is representing himself and is demanding $18,000,000 with the nature of the suit being personal injury.
More information as it appears.
