Thanks to "Jadeic (Dave)" for bringing this to our attention.
In Atlantic v. Howell, the pro se Arizona case in which the Electronic Frontier Foundation filed an amicus curiae brief in connection with the RIAA's summary judgment motion, the RIAA has moved to compel an inspection of Mr. Howell's hard drive.
The court records indicated that the Court first tried to avoid the motion by having the parties 'cooperate' with each other in resolving the dispute, and that Mr. Howell failed to 'cooperate', so that then the Court ordered that the motion could go forward.
