p2pnet news | RIAA News:- “I wonder how many of the defendants think the settlements were ‘equitable’?”
That’s Recording Industry vs The People‘s Ray Beckerman on the news that a New York judge has decided that only he and another local judge should preside over Brooklyn cases.
Judge J. Trager, ” has denied the motions by the defendants in two Brooklyn cases, Maverick v Chowdhury and Elektra v Torres, for random judicial assignment of RIAA cases,” says the post.
Trager, “held that the cases should all continue to be assigned just to himself and Magistrate Judge Levy,” says Beckerman, adding:
“In his decision denying the defendants’ motion, Judge Trager said that (a) many of the defendants have retained the same attorneys, (b) there have been approximately 350 RIAA cases in the Eastern District of New York, and (c) Magistrate Levy has brought about ‘equitable settlements’.”
