A hearing has been scheduled in Warner v. Does 1-4, the "John Doe" case which the RIAA commenced after submitting a notice of dismissal of Warner v. Cassin. The hearing is for oral argument of Ms. Cassin's motion to designate the cases as "related", which the RIAA previously indicated it did not oppose.
The Judge's chambers telephoned plaintiffs' counsel and indicated that the parties should file a notice of motion. Ms. Cassin's notice of motion was filed today.
