No, the above header is no typo. The hardfought Akanthos, Whitebox v. Compucredit litigation (covered here (12/22), here (1/25), here (2/26), here (4/2)) provoked a backlash. Predator and prey have switched sides. (Star Tribune coverage is here. Complaint is here.)
The original Akanthos case, alleges Compucredit, was a sham and plaintiffs knew it. Compucredit further pleads two counts of violation of the Sherman Act.
U.S. District Court Judge James M. Rosenbaum (D. Minn.) makes a star-turn at Para. 37 of Compucredit’s complaint. The new case is before U.S. District Court Judge John R. Tunheim (D. Minn.) (and U.S. Mag. Judge Jeff Keyes).
