Sr Assoc
Mudd Law Offices
My practice is mainly in civil litigation, particularly in the growing area of Internet law. As such, I have worked on matters involving privacy rights, intellectual property, defamation and other issues that arise over the Internet. Particularly, I have represented numerous defendants is mass doe copyright infringement cases involving alleged downloading on BitTorrent. Further, I have aided the Electronic Frontier Foundation, EFF, as local counsel in several matters involving individuals’ rights. Additionally, I worked on behalf of a John Doe party in Stone v. Paddock Publications, Inc. where the First District Appellate Court of Illinois reversed the trial court’s ruling that John Doe’s identity needed to be disclosed in regard to political commentary he made on the Internet.
