In Capitol v. Foster, the RIAA sent a check purporting to satisfy the $68,685.23 attorneys fees judgment that had been entered against it, but failed to follow Ms. Foster's attorneys' payment instructions, and failed to include the interest that had accrued on the judgment.
Ms. Foster's attorneys have moved for an order amending the judgment and the RIAA has moved for an order deeming the judgment to have been satisfied.
[Ed. Note: It is highly unusual for a judgment debtor's attorneys not to follow the judgment creditor's attorney's payment instructions]
