In Elektra v. Torres, in connection with defendant's request for the Brooklyn RIAA cases to be returned to the usual federal court procedure of random assignment to judges, rather than treated as "related" and always assigned to the same judge, defendant's lawyers have pointed out to the Court how the RIAA's statements in the "surreply" it filed in the Oregon University case -- to the effect that each case is different -- contradict the papers it filed in opposition to the random assignment motion -- to the effect that all the cases are basically the same.
