Texas Attorney Fights ‘Computer Terrorists’

     DENTON, Texas (CN) – “Computer terrorists” ruined the credit of an attorney who won a client a $1 million judgment against pornographers, and major credit agencies refuse to correct his record, the lawyer claims in court.
     Jason Lee Van Dyke sued Equifax, Experian, Discover Financial Services, Capital One and others in Denton County Court on May 22.
     Banks and credit agencies are the only defendants, but Van Dyke says the trouble started when he represented a woman who sued PinkMeth.com in 2012, to try to stop the publication of sexually explicit photos of her on the Internet.
     Van Dyke says the case made national headlines, whereupon Anonymous and other “computer terrorist organizations” threatened to publish personal information about him and his elderly parents unless he “abandon(ed) his client.”
     He refused to do so, but won a $1 million judgment for her about six months ago, Van Dyke says, but the computer attacks on him have continued.
     “The attacks on plaintiff have resulted in serious damage to plaintiff’s credit reputation,” he says in the complaint.
     Van Dyke says he informed all the defendants that his credit reports have been tarnished by fraud, but they refuse to correct their reports.
     “Plaintiff has been very patient over the past ten months for removal of this negative information and his patience has now expired,” he says.
     He seeks statutory damages, actual damages and punitive damages for negligence against Discover, Citibank, Cash Central, Speedy Cash, Comenity, Capital One, and Citizens Bank, and damages for unfair debt collection against TRS Recovery Services.
     He filed the case pro se.
