A lawyer who worked on dozens of cases designed to extract cash settlements from alleged BitTorrent pirates is now suing his former paymasters. Lawyer James Davis, who litigated Dallas Buyers Club and London Has Fallen cases, says the people involved in the scheme deliberately deceived him. He’s now demanding at least $300,000 in damages.
