Lawsuit: AMP Futures Trading aka AMP Global Clearing

This is a public notice that AMP GLOBAL CLEARING aka AMP FUTURES TRADING has filed a lawsuit against futures.io (formerly BMT) regarding posts on futures.io (formerly BMT). This is not the first time AMP TRADING has used attorneys in an attempt to manipulate what is shared on the site.

Attached to this thread you will find PDF copies of court documents. I plan to post further public filings as they are filed with the court.

Unfortunately, attempts to settle this dispute have so far not produced a resolution.

This means I am preparing to go to trial. I will be fighting to preserve the rights of posters on futures.io (formerly BMT) to freely express their opinions and share their experiences.

Due to this, I am starting a fundraiser campaign to raise money and support the fight.

I will provide instructions shortly on how you can send funds, stay tuned.

PLEASE NOTE, CONTRIBUTIONS TO futures.io (formerly BMT) ARE NOT TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

You may donate using this link:

Tip

UPDATE JULY 24 2014:

BIG MIKE TRADING HAS WON, AMP HAS LOST. THE JUDGE RULED THE CASE IS DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE.

I have added a button to the top of futures.io (formerly BMT) pages that says "Support our legal defense fund". If you would like to support our legal defense fund, you can click on that button and it will take you to PayPal.

You can enter any gift amount you like from $1 to $14,000.00. This gift is not tax deductible.

I know I can count on the support of the community, so thank you in advance.

I will remove the "Support our legal defense fund" button once we have raised an amount approximate to the current legal costs.

It may be a while...

At the March 10 hearing Judge Flannery notified us that the case had been transferred to another judge within the same division. Therefore, we re-noticed the same two motions to be heard before the new judge on March 17.

PDF copies attached.
