In UMG v. Lindor, the RIAA lawyers, in support of their motion to strike Ms. Lindor's fourth affirmative defense, of copyright misuse, twice represented to Judge Trager that it was Magistrate Judge Robert M. Levy, rather than themselves, who had questioned the legal "viability" of the defense, and that Magistrate Levy had ordered them to file their motion.
Ms. Lindor's counsel have written to the Magistrate Judge calling both representations to Magistrate Levy's attention.
