In view of the RIAA's failure to pay the month-old award of attorneys fees in Capitol v. Foster, and its lawyers' failure to respond to Ms. Foster's lawyer's email, Ms. Foster filed a motion this Monday asking the Court to enter judgment so that she could move forward with judgment collection proceedings.
The RIAA did not oppose the motion, but filed papers saying it did not object to entry of judgment, but intimated that it believed there would be an automatic 10-day stay of enforcement of the judgment, and further indicated that it had 30 days to appeal from the judgment.
In response, Ms. Foster is asking the Judge to require the RIAA to post security for payment of the attorneys fees award, and sufficient to cover all of the ensuing attorneys fees expected to be incurred.
