The law firm acting on behalf of the makers of Dallas Buyers Club has confirmed to Crikey the case will close tomorrow and will not be appealed.

The announcement brings an end to a 16-month saga over attempts by US-based film studio Voltage to get details of customers of iiNet and five other ISPs linked to 4726 IP addresses alleged to have downloaded the film over peer-to-peer file-sharing services.
