The RIAA's latest attempt to extend the discovery deadline for "reasonableness" of defendant's attorneys fees in Capitol v. Foster has been rejected by the Court.
Judge Lee R. West ordered the RIAA to produce its expert reports by April 9th at 10 AM, or else be precluded from introducing any expert reports:
March 29, 2007, Order Granting Motion to Compel*
The judge noted in a footnote that the RIAA's lawyers were operating under an "apparent misunderstanding of the Court's discovery orders".
The depositions of the RIAA's "expert" on attorneys fees is scheduled for April 11th.
The deadline for discovery on the "attorneys fees" issue is April 16th.
Ms. Foster is represented by Marilyn Barringer-Thomson of Oklahoma City.
