I doubt that it is a legitimate plaintiff.
A "legit" plaintiff would not be posting their threats on the website's comment section - they would just go ahead and file suit. And their attorney would likely tell the plaintiff to stay the hell away from the defendant, and to never engage them in communication of any sort.
Plus, in a situation like this, there aren't any "authorities" to contact. It's not like copyright infringement is a criminal matter, and the police will break down their doors to haul them off to jail - if the site is to face any liability, it would be a civil lawsuit.
