Dawnell Leadbetter, the successful defendant in Interscope v. Leadbetter, has brought a motion for attorneys fees against the record company plaintiffs, Interscope Records, Capitol Records, SONY BMG, Atlantic Recording, BMG Music, and Virgin Records.
The RIAA's case against her had been dismissed in December, on the plaintiffs' own motion, with the Court indicating that it was retaining jurisdiction over the matter "to hear collateral issues like the imposition of costs and fees at a later date after the voluntary dismissal [of] this action."
