In Interscope v. Does 1-40, the Tampa, Florida, case in which two (2) University of South Florida students designated as "John Does" by the RIAA have gotten together, hired a lawyer, and made a motion to quash the subpoena directed to the University, the Court has stayed the subpoena pending resolution of the motion.
The language of the docket entry reads as follows:
ORDER GRANTING  MOTION for protective order or in the alternative to quash ex parte subpoena filed by Doe #37, Doe #21 to the extent that
responses to this subpoena are STAYED pending resolution of this
motion. Signed by Judge Thomas G. Wilson on 8/13/2007. (Williams, Carrie)
However, the language of the order seems to say that responses are only stayed as to John Does #21 and #37.
