Hi Ray,

the link points again to your letter to Judge Robinson.

@holdenSK: The Judge stamped the letter 'So Ordered' and signed. Many judges don't trouble to draft formal orders for motions where a simple 'Yes' or 'No' suffices.

holdenSK,

The letter is the order. See the stamp at the bottom that says SO ORDERED with the judges signature.

@anon:

The judge ruled on the letter, actually. I was confused at first as well, but you can see his handwritten note on the right side of the letter next to Ray's signature.

This man is speculating that this is good news for the Defense. That the RIAA will not yet be allowed to run roughshod over the Defendant on an outright fishing expedition based on no reasonable evidence and no reasonable legal theory to pursue, while taking every opportunity themselves to delay, deny, and never respond to discovery requests from the other side.

As this man sees it, discovery is all about the intimidation and embarrassment game played by the RIAA lawyer team to beat the Defendant down without ever having to go to trial.
