In UMG v. Lindor, Ms. Lindor has renewed her request into pretrial discovery relating to her defense of "copyright misuse".
She initially made the requests on March 9, 2006, in her interrogatories and document requests. Magistrate Robert M. Levy ruled, on July 25, 2006, that she could not have the requested information.
Today, citing the decision in Lava v. Amurao upholding a similar copyright misuse counterclaim, Ms. Lindor renewed her request for an order compelling discovery on this issue.
