Patti Santangelo is opposing the RIAA's motion to withdraw her case "without prejudice", in Elektra v. Santangelo.
Her attorney was delayed in filing his opposition papers. The RIAA would not consent to his filing the papers late. He then requested permission from the Court to file his opposition papers late. Judge Colleen McMahon granted permission, saying "I will Accept the late filing. Enough of these silly letters."
