Judge Locke denies motion to quash in Malibu Media v Doe, stay lifted

In Malibu Media v. Doe, EDNY 15-3504, Judge Locke has denied the defendant's motion to quash, and lifted the stay on all of the EDNY Malibu Media cases, which had all been consolidated.

The Court accepted the representations of plaintiff's expert, a Michael Patzer of a company called Excipio, that Malibu relies on "direct detection" rather than "indirect detection", and that it is "not possible" for there to be misidentification.
