In Elektra v. Santangelo II, the White Plains, New York, case against two (2) of Patti Santangelo's children in which the RIAA obtained a default judgment against Patti's daughter Michelle, the Court has denied the RIAA's motion to compel a judgment enforcement deposition of the defendant.
It is our understanding that a pretrial conference is scheduled for July 13, 2007, that under the court rules Ms. Santangelo cannot make a motion to vacate her default judgment until then, and that Ms. Santangelo is intending to make a motion to vacate her default judgment, which if granted would moot the RIAA's "judgment enforcement" attempts.
