20,000 Defendants Dismissed from "Hurt Locker" Lawsuit

Voltage Pictures filed suit in May against 24,583 torrent users for illegally downloading the movie Hurt Locker. It looks like the studio came to its collective senses and dismissed more than 20K of those lawsuits for being too difficult to prosecute.

In other words, in trying to track down and prosecute 24,000 torrenters en masse, Voltage has without question bit off more than they can chew, especially since the alleged infringers are fighting back.
