Submission + - EFF: Over 40,000 Does Dismissed In Copyright Troll (

Requiem18th writes: From the EFF site:

Thousands of unnamed “John Does” in P2P file sharing lawsuits filed in California, Washington DC, Texas, and West Virginia have been severed, effectively dismissing over 40,000 defendants. The plaintiffs in these cases must now re-file against almost all of the Does individually rather than suing them en mass.
