It seems the RIAA just can’t get enough of going after University of Maine students.
But from the look of it, the judges in Portland, Maine, may be getting wise to the record company lawyers’ antics.
The RIAA counsel submitted yet another ex parte discovery order to the court (‘ex parte’ meaning ‘without notice’) in BMG v Does 1-11, but this time the judge refused to sign, pointing out there’s no emergency since there’s no evidence that records are about to be destroyed (PDF).
This is the same judge —- Margaret J. Kravchuk —- who’s previously suggested the imposition of Rule 11 sanctions against the RIAA lawyers, accusing them of gamesmanship, all of which prompts one to ask:
Has the stupidity of the RIAA lawyers attained even greater heights?’
