BOSTON - In a copyright case that presents issues "of particular importance," a Massachusetts federal judge on Aug. 22 green-lighted early, expedited discovery but ordered a plaintiff to propose a protective order that will shield the privacy of third parties who are not yet defendants in the lawsuit (Patrick Collins Inc. v. John Does 1-79, No. 12-10532, D. Mass.; 2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 118506).
