p2pnet news | RIAA News:- The RIAA have had their chance.
Now it’s Tanya’s turn.
p2pnet posted that towards the end of last month, the subject being efforts exerted by Vivendi Universal, EMI, Warner Music and Sony BMG’s RIAA to avoid paying Tanya —- Tanya Andersen, the Oregon mother who, with her lawyers Lory Lybeck and Ben Justus, has the Big 4 and their attack dog in full retreat —- the money they owe her.
Following years of vicious and unmitigated attacks by the RIAA and its cohorts, John V. Acosta awarded her nearly $108,000 in fees and costs,.
But Pay? No Way! – says the RIAA.
The RIAA tried to dime her down to $30,000, but that didn’t work.
So they tried $60,000.
That didn’t work either and now judge A. Redden has affirmed the Acosta award.
Says Redden in his court document >>>
After careful review of the record and that the parties’ objections, I agree with Magistrate Judge Acosta’s analysis and conclusions.
Accordingly, I ADOPT Judge Acosta’s Findings and Recommendation (doc. 19) as my own opinion.
Andersen’s Motion to Fix Amount of Attorney’s Fee (doc. 159) is GRANTED in part, and DENIED in part.
Andersen is hereby awarded attorney’s fees in the amounbt of $103,175.
Andersen’s bill of costs is APPROVED in the amouhnt of $4,659.
However, neither the Big 4 nor are their RIAA have let trifling matters such as court decisions or orders stand in their way and we can expect a lot more prevarication and wriggling and writhing.
Ultimately, though, they’ll have to pay.
And that’ll only be the beginning.
