+ - RIAA's "Sanctions" Motion in Lindor Denied-> 1

Submitted by NewYorkCountryLawyer
NewYorkCountryLawyer writes: When the RIAA decided to drop UMG Recordings v. Lindor, a case against a Brooklyn woman who had never used a computer, it asked the Court to impose 'discovery sanctions' against Mrs. Lindor and against her counsel, Ray Beckerman (known here as NewYorkCountryLawyer), claiming that they had engaged in misconduct regarding discovery. The defendant's response (PDF) pointed out to the Court that each of the RIAA's accusations was false. Concluding that the RIAA's claims of misconduct were 'largely overstated', the Magistrate Judge, in a 13-page decision (PDF), has recommended that the plaintiffs' motion for sanctions be denied. The Magistrate recommended that the RIAA be permitted to withdraw its case 'without prejudice'.
