RIAA Says It Will Seek "Reconsideration" of Capitol v. Foster Order; Asks for 60 Days to Complete Attorneys Fee Discovery

In Capitol v. Foster, the Oklahoma case in which the Judge has granted defendant's motion for attorneys fees, the RIAA has indicated it intends to file a motion for "reconsideration", and that -- if the motion is denied -- it wants 60 days in which to complete discovery on the reasonableness of the attorneys fees.

Oh, somewhat OT: If gaming the courts across America is not an ethical practice for a law firm to engage in, has anyone brought a complaint against Holme Roberts & Owen, LLP in Colorado for orchestrating these lawsuits? Not that such a complaint would matter to the Colorado Bar, particularly since the firm seems to be one of the bigger ones in that state; but hey, somebody should let them know. This might be a useful link: http://www.coloradosupremecourt.com/Regulation/Regulation.asp

I think they are trying to have the court reconsider this because I have a feeling that if this stands, may lead to others wanting to defend, and more "not guilty" verdicts could end up costing RIAA their campaignco

Reminds me of "A Few Good Men"

Lt. Weinberg: "I strenuously object?" Is that how it works? Hm? "Objection." "Overruled." "Oh, no, no, no. No, I STRENUOUSLY object." "Oh. Well, if you strenuously object then I should take some time to reconsider."
