Doe 15's Motion to Proceed Anonymously is granted. Any publicly filed documents referencing Doe 15 should refer to Doe 15 by his John Doe identifier rather than his real name. Pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 21, all remaining defendants are severed from this case with the exception of Doe 15. The clerk is ordered to sever the claims against Defendants David J. Reynolds, Felix Stanek, Gregory Blake, and John Doe 11 from this case, to treat the claims against those defendants as separate actions, and to assign a separate docket number to each action. Malibu Media is directed to file separate amended complaints containing only its claims against each individual defendant. As the remaining defendants have been severed from this case pursuant to Fed.R.Civ.P. 21 and Doe 15 is the only remaining defendant in this case, Doe 15s Motion to Sever is denied as moot.
