In the recent mass lawsuit brought in DC concerning file sharing of a movie, Achte/Neunte v. Does 1-2094, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and other organizations have filed papers supporting Time Warner's motion to quash subpoena. EFF's brief further argues that in any further lawsuits, the plaintiffs be required to establish a jurisdictional basis for bringing the action in that court, that they be enjoined not to engage in improper joinder, and that they be required to establish to some extent the merits of their claim.
