Axanar Defense Response to Plaintiffs’ Request for Ex Parte Relief

Janet Gershen-Siegel

Jespah (Janet Gershen-Siegel) has been a fan of Star Trek since probably the first set of reruns of The Original Series. She has an eclectic background, including an undergraduate degree in Philosophy, a JD (she practiced insurance defense law for a few years in New York and is a lot happier since she retired from that in 1990), and a MS in Interactive Media, which is a real-live social media degree.

Along the way, she has about a decade and a half of data analysis work under her belt and currently works as a blog coordinator for a high-end wedding blog and also as a blogger for hire (topics include diverse subjects like ad retargeting but also the nursing job market), and has a shingle out to work on social media presence, with a focus on independent authors as she is also a published science fiction author. Plus, she has been a community manager for a large Q & A website since 2002, which is before that existed as a job title.

She was raised on Long Island so, when she is riled up, the accent gallops back out and she can sound like Fran Drescher with a law degree. She lives in Boston with her husband of over 20 years and more computers than they need.

She can always be bribed with pie.

Axanar Defense Response to Plaintiffs’ Request for Ex Parte Relief

So the Axanar Defense Response came in quickly (the parties were under a strict deadline!). And as expected, the response drags on but defense had to do it right quick. So as always, we’ll go through it line by line. It’s huge – sorry! Furthermore, this post is the sequel to the plaintiffs’ ex parte application for an order and the David Grossman declaration and exhibits.

First of all, as always, we start with a good old cover page.

This page references plaintiffs’ October 3 letter; I have gone over this already.

So then this page covers the Axanar expenditures. And Ranahan continues to state she did not say making this information would be ’embarrassing’; rather, that the information is ‘sensitive’. So if you think this is splitting hairs, you’re right.

And then this page gets into producing defendant Peters for a second deposition.
