p2pnet.net News:- It seems it’s acceptable for the Big Four Organized Music cartel’s RIAA to fail to honour commitments made by its lawyers.
Home health aide Marie Lindor illegally distributed copyrighted music online, claim Warmer Music, EMI, Vivendi Universal and Sony BMG.
Their RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) demanded access to her hard drive in a bid to find incriminating evidence.
A systems professional was named to make the search and, says her lawyer, Ray Beckerman, “On September 12th I told plaintiffs’ counsel I wanted to schedule the deposition of the hard drive expert. He responded that it would make sense to wait for the report and that the report would be ready in 30 days.”
But the report failed to arrive as promised and consequently, “We respectfully request an order dismissing the complaint herein, based on plaintiffs` cavalier disregard of their discovery obligations throughout this proceeding,” Beckerman told Levy at the end of October.
Lindor’s motion to dismiss the complaint based on the RIAA’s failure to deliver the hard drive analysis was, however, denied by Levy, who also told lawyers on both sides to, “exercise civility in their dealings with each other …. and restraint in seeking relief from the Court,” says Beckerman’s Recording Industry vs The People.
