You may recall that, after the RIAA announced on December 18th that it was stopping its lawsuit campaign, and hadn't filed any new lawsuits for months, we pointed out that this was a falsehood, and identified dozens of cases filed within a week or so of the announcement, some as late as December 15th.
We have now learned that one of the people sued on December 15th has retained counsel and made a motion to dismiss the complaint, in a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, case Atlantic Recording v. Williams.
The defendant, Jerome Williams, is represented by Elizabeth A. Farina of the well regarded Pittsburgh litigation firm Swensen Perer & Kontos.
