GWU Students file reply brief further supporting dismissal of complaint

In Arista v. Does 1-19, the Washington DC case in which Matthew Oppenheim is representing the RIAA in an attempt to get the private identity information of students at George Washington University, the GWU student "John Doe #3", has filed his or her reply brief in support of so much of his or her motion as sought dismissal of the complaint both for failure to state a claim and for misjoinder.

This is also the case in which the judge ordered the RIAA to show cause why its subpoena should not be quashed.

The student is represented by Stephen Robertson of Robertson Medlin, from Greensboro, North Carolina.

Doe #3 should submit a claim for dismissal of the case because the only "evidence" presented by the RIAA was illegally gathered by unlicensed investigators, making it inadmissible, as well as everything developed as a result of this inadmissible evidence.

And as for anyone who thinks anonymous posters have nothing to contribute, I disagree.
