We have just learned of a case that has been pending in Missouri since November, 2006, Atlantic v. Raleigh.
The complaint is one of the RIAA's old-style "making available" complaints, since it was filed almost a year before Interscope v. Rodriguez.
The answer contains information about the facts of the case, and interposed a number of counterclaims. However, the counterclaims were dismissed by the Court in an order dated August 18, 2008.
From an examination of the docket it appears that discovery has been on hold, and the parties are now scheduled to appear at a conference on September 11th.
