WolfPack Student Named as "John Doe" making motion to vacate ex parte order

We have just learned of a fifth motion to vacate ex parte order being made, in the RIAA's campaign against college students, this one by a "John Doe" who is a student at North Carolina State University, in LaFace v. Does 1-38.

The student has until October 17th to file a motion to vacate.

He is being represented by attorney Steve Robertson, of Robertson, Medlin & Blocker, and is looking for other NC State "John Does" to join him and share expenses.

This is the 5th motion of which we are aware by college student "John Does" to vacate the ex parte order. The others were made in:

Arista v. Does 1-11 (Oklahoma City, OK)
Arista v. Does 1-21 (D. Mass.)
Interscope v. Does 1-40 (Tampa FL) and
Virgin v. Does 1-33 (Knoxville, TN)

To the best of our knowledge, all 4 motions are presently pending.

Motion for Extension of Time*
Order Granting Extension of Time*

My hatred for all things UNC-CH related pales in comparison to my hatred of the RIAA's underhanded tactics. I wish this fellow student the very best of luck.

Go Pack!
