    No. Anyone who says they have a backup is only keeping your autistic hopes high enough to be crushed later.

    ...and now I won't post anything until two weeks later.

    Yes but it will only be accessible by dialing into a BBS using a Commodore 64 cartridge modem.

    Is it legal to literally copy the actions the the previous defendants of Monsarrat? Looks like those lawyers hung Monsarrat and Ishman out to dry. Would/could that be a legal precedent? Is that ethical? @lulzyer

    And, also, the oddity of the fact that Ishman appears to be both a lawyer for Monsarrat and a business partner: This partnership, in the place of a putative client and attorney relationship, is more than irregular. It may subject Attorney Ishman and his law firm to the same liability as Mr. Monsarrat, based on their involvement in a larger scheme. See Kurker v. Hill, 44 Mass. App. Ct. 184, 192 & n. 8 (1998). "[A] civil action is wrongful if its initiator does not have probable cause to believe the suit will succeed, and is acting primarily for a purpose other than that of properly adjudicating his claims." G.S. Enterprises, Inc. v. Falmouth Marine, Inc., 410 Mass. 262, 273 (1991). It appears that Mr. Monsarrat has dragged Mr. Newman into court, and badgered an untold number of others, to make a name for his "cyber investigation service." This ulterior purpose, combined with the paucity of the complaint's factual allegations and legal claims, strongly suggest that the action has been undertaken without good faith. These improprieties would support counterclaims of abuse of process, see generally Millennium Equity Holdings, LLC v. Mahlowitz, 456 Mass. 627, 636 (2010), and under Chapter 93A, see Northeast Data Sys., Inc. v. McDonnell Douglas Computer Sys. Co., 986 F.2d 607, 611 (1st Cir. 1993) (filing legal claim "which proves baseless" is an unfair trade practice if claim brought with "ulterior motive"); Nova Assignments, Inc. v. Kunian, 77 Mass. App. Ct. 34, 44 n. 7 (2010); Refuse & Envtl. Sys., Inc. v. Indus. Servs. of Am., Inc., 932 F.2d 37, 43 (1st Cir. 1991) ("bringing [a] lawsuit in spite of the evidence" can violate Chapte 93A). These improprieties would further support sanctions under M.G.L. c. 231, § 6F, see Fronk v. Fowler, 456 Mass. 317, 334 -35 (2010) ("Claims that are so unmoored from law or fact are the very definition of 'frivolous': 'Lacking a legal basis or legal merit; not serious; not reasonably purposeful.'") (quoting Black's Law Dictionary 739 (9th ed. 2009)), and under Mass. R. Civ. P. 11, see Van Christo Adver. v. M/A-COM/LCS, 426 Mass. 410, 416-17 (1998).

    Monsarat now has a new lawyer/business partner: Goren. Hasn't he written a book on internet bullying and his dream policy on how to handle it? Wouldn't this be a similar situation and be tossed almost immediately?

    Mundane Matt made a video yesterday regarding this. He raises a good point, how will Monsarat prove what was said about him isn't true? And also suggests going to the ACLU. The ACLU is a long shot but still worth trying imo
