We have just learned that Arista v. Greubel, the Texas case in which the Nettwerk Music company was reportedly funding the defendant's defense, was dismissed with prejudice pursuant to a joint stipulation of dismissal over a year ago.
[Ed. Note. The fact that it was dismissed with prejudice pursuant to a joint stipulation means it was settled. No doubt the settlement was secret, which is presumably why the defendant's lawyers never even told me about the dismissal, even though it's a matter of public record. -R.B.]
