Cisco Asks Judge Albright to Impose a “Prefiling Injunction” on the “Band of Merry Lawyers at Ramey LLP”

November 12, 2023

Cisco has asked District Judge Alan D. Albright to issue a “prefiling injunction” against Ramey LLP, preventing that firm and its principal from filing any case against Cisco in the Western District of Texas without prior approval to do so from the district’s chief judge and from filing any case against Cisco in any other district without “attaching a copy of the opinion and order issuing the injunction with” that filing. Cisco made this request in a motion for attorney fees in a case filed by mCom IP, LLC that Judge Albright dismissed with prejudice after Ramey failed to show up at a hearing on a motion to dismiss. mCom IP, in a (corrected) brief signed by William P. Ramey, III, has opposed the request, arguing that “nothing rare happened in this case”, that “it was normal litigation”, and that the imposition of a “prefiling injunction” is “wholly unwarranted”, “severe”, “drastic”, and “extreme”.
