There are many questions about things but the idea of who to name in an infringement case when the possibility of criminal actions is part of the case is extremely important. You have options but as I have said, the cases are very complicated which may be more than you can handle. One mistake can cost you thousands or tens of thousands of dollars. You should name all parties that you may need to information from or who may have helped them. You and your attorney should work on that. If you do it per se, then you need to think about naming all involved in any part. I do not like shotgun approaches but sometimes they are necessary.
There is a designation for lack of a better word that helps to cover the situation, et al. It is a Latin phrase that basically means “and the rest’ or “the others”. It allows you to include others without the listing of the names. It basically saves work.
You also see multiple people named in some cases without using the et al. The actual filing should have the names of all people listed. The subsequent papers usually carry the et al as a clerical shortcut in my opinion.
Here is an example of a fictional case: Plaintiff: John Doe, James Doe vs defendants: XYZ Corp, Sister Doe, Brother Doe, Aunt Jane.
You might see it written as Plaintiff: John Doe et al vs Defendants: XYZ Corp et al.
Hope that helps to understand that part of it, now the other question about the naming of the people is pretty simple. The more people who are eligible to be included the better the chance of you collecting damages if that is what you are after in the case. Let us suppose that you win a verdict of $ 100,000 dollars and the main defendant refuses to pay. Before dragging them back to court for cause you can collect the monies from the other defendants, all of it.
It is also used in any criminal proceedings so that there are better chances for people to want deals and help the prosecution. You see it all the time. One person talks and walks, the other is convicted by that information.
The reason I like Jeeps is simple. They are easy to work on, the parts are readily available and not overpriced. In the 4 wheel arena why buy others that use the Jeep parts. You can look up the transfer case for example model number 242 J and find it on Land Rovers, GMC Denali trucks, Hummers, Ford Broncos. There are sites that list many more including the Chevy Suburban. If they all use it, then it must be pretty good. Some have since started using other items as AWD is replacing 4WD for the general use on streets. There are sites that list part of the group and others that have a complete listing if you look for them.
My take on it is simple, if you are going into places that require off road trails then you need 4WD not AWD. If you are taking pictures of weddings, portraits and downtown scenes that have paved roads, get a car with good gas mileage or a small SUV, or a light duty suv with AWD and be happy. Just do not go where you need more as someone may have to haul you out. That may be the cheapest part of your trip.
