An Athens lawyer has announced he will defend students in federal court facing legal action from the recording industry.
Attorney Joseph Hazelbaker is offering to defend students faced with recording industry lawsuits filed in Columbus federal court. The Center for Student Legal Services doesn’t work outside of Athens.
“I have a soft spot for these David vs. Goliath battles and an interest in helping people facing a bully — which I view the recording industry project (to catch file-sharers) as being,” Hazelbaker said. “Our offer to (take these cases) is filling a vacuum that exists in Athens.”
Hazelbaker’s fees depend on individual students and their situations, he said, adding that he’d initially consult with students for free and probably won’t bill any clients.
