That writes TorrentFreak. Elsevier performs the lawsuit against torrent sites Sci-Hub, Libgen and Bookfi since last year, but claims to have all other means to identify the managers, exhausted. The court in New York, where the case is conducted, CloudFlare has been ordered to hold all the relevant data until the court reaches a verdict comes on the request. The content narrator has granted in the past services Libgen and Bookfi, but it is not clear whether the service still has information about the administrators in the house. Sci-Hub is already clear who Elsevier logo is behind this.
