Submission + - ACS: Law withdraws pursuing illegal file-sharers (bbc.co.uk)

Necroloth writes: As mentioned previously on Slashdot, ACS: Law has been sending out letters to thousands of alleged file-sharers on behalf on it's client, MediaCAT. However, solicitor, Andrew Crossley, has now ceased all work on such cases citing criminal attacks and death threats. Judge Birss doesn't seem to be taken by this and comments "I am getting the impression with every twist and turn since I started looking at these cases that there is a desire to avoid any judicial scrutiny".
Judge Birss is expected to deliver his judgement on the case later in the week... perhaps all is not lost in the British judicial system.
