In UMG v. Lindor, the RIAA has sought to produce a "supplemental" expert's report from Dr. Doug Jacobson, which contains new material not referred to my Dr. Jacobson in his prior reports (see exhibits 15 & 16, his prior declaration, or his deposition testimony), in support of their request for a telephone conference.
Attorneys for Ms. Lindor's son, who is targeted by the RIAA's letter, and for defendant, both opposed the application, and defendant moved to strike the report for failure to comply with the Federal Rules, and to mandate in-person, as opposed to telephone, conferences for plaintiffs' Denver, Colorado, attorneys.
