A number of complicated issues are due to be heard at oral argument on September 10th, in Tucson, Arizona, in Loud v. Sanchez, among them:
-whether the defendant's counterclaims for abuse of process and for a declaratory judgment are legally sufficient, and
-whether the RIAA's practice of citing unpublished decisions citation of which is prohibited by court rules should cause the Court to award sanctions and revoke the pro hac vice admission of the RIAA's Denver lawyer.
This is a case in which the RIAA previously sought to withdraw its case against the father, and then tried to amend the complaint to leave the father in the case but add the daughter as a defendant.
