Defendant Lucas Shashek filed to remove to federal court a lawsuit filed against him last month in Madison County that alleges he hacked into an adult entertainment site.

Shashek sought removal of the case on July 31.

Lightspeed Media Corp. seeks to recover against the defendant based on acts allegedly committed by an unidentified person using the internet in the defendant's home on Sept. 25, 2011.

According to the lawsuit, Shashek was identified as a person who allegedly belongs to a hacking community, where hacked usernames and passwords are passed back and forth.

Lightspeed Media claims Shashek converted the plaintiff's content, became unjustly enriched at the expense of the plaintiff, and was negligent in his allowance of this hacking to occur via his internet access connection, the case states.

Paul Duffy of Prenda Law in Chicago represents the plaintiff.

Laura Gerdes Long of Danna McKitrick in St. Louis represents the defense.

The case was assigned to Madison County Chief Judge Ann Callis.

The case is Madison County Case number 12-L-927.
