The Litigation Finance Problems at photo-sharingwebsite.com
Hey everyone. I just wanted to say hello and update everybody on things going on at photo-sharing-websites.com.
Around a year ago my all of our lives here got pretty hectic. We were all in the office on a Wednesday and doing the work that we usually do and then we heard a nock on the office door. I went to answer it and from there our life over here fell apart.
As I answered the door a man that I had never saw before said hello and with out a breath he said “you are being served“. With that my jaw hit the floor. I was stunned and did not know what to do as he snapped a picture with a old camera ( I think that it was a d100) and with that he was gone.
I looked at the paper work and due to legal reasons I cannot go into it to much but needless to say it was a lawsuit because of a website that had nothing to do with us.
I called up the person listed as the plaintiff on the suit and told him that the website listed in the complaint was not mine. With that he told me that it was not in his best interest to speaking to me and if I had any other questions to please contact his lawyer.
With that I did. His lawyer told me that they had done their research and that we owned the website. It did not matter how many times I told him that it was not he did not believe me.
After that 30 min conversation I hung up the phone. With that I knew it was time to call my lawyer. I called him and told him what was going on with that he told me to fax over the paperwork to him.
I faxed it over to him and about a week later I got a call back from him. He told me not to worry there was nothing there as long as I what I told him was true about owning the website. I confirmed that I did not own any website by the name that was in the lawsuit. At that time he told me though if I wanted to I could I think he said “countersue” them for I think he said deformation of character. I asked him what that entailed and he told me but we were going to have to spend some time in court. I told him to do it and he did.
That is how it started. It became a ugly fight that was going on for way too long. It started to drain my accounts (if you have never been in a court case DON’T. You have no idea how much it cost to do it). I was in need of litigation funding and I had my lawyer call https://www.pravaticapital.com and I got the funding to go on.
After that it was smooth sailing after that. The plaintiff was loosing money and need more so they pulled out but not before i had the judgement in my favor. I am thankful that it is done now and looking back I wish that this did not have to happen but I was glad that I was able to survive it. I thought during the middle of it that I was going to loose this website but I lucky we did not.
With that being said I know that we have not updated the website as often as we have in the past and that is the reason why. With that in the rearview mirror now we can get back to talking about cameras. So next time we will talk about the new flashes coming out this fall.
