Another ABA Military Pro Bono Project Success Story
A military legal assistance attorney referred a case to the ABA Military Pro Bono Project on behalf of a Navy servicemember stationed in Florida. The servicemember needed pro bono assistance in Washington D.C. with a copyright infringement claim for which he had received notice from his internet service provider. The internet service provider was suing internet users for illegally downloading movies. The servicemember denied any wrongdoing and feared that another user may have hacked his account. Just a few hours after the case referral, the ABA Military Pro Bono Project found an intellectual property attorney who volunteered to provide advice to this servicemember.
