In a Boston case against a pro se litigant (someone who is representing herself, without an attorney), Capitol v. Fanguiaire, the Judge has denied the RIAA's motion for summary judgment. The motion was based on the defendant's failure to respond to the RIAA's Notice to Admit. The Judge ruled that the RIAA had served the notice to admit prematurely, prior to conducting a discovery meeting with the defendant.
The Judge also ordered all of the parties to attend a discovery meeting in October.
