In Capitol Records v. Thomas, the RIAA has opposed Jammie Thomas's request for an extension of time to enable her to hire her own expert witness to rebut the RIAA's expert.
Ms. Thomas recently received a $3000 grant from the Expert Witness Defense Fund of the Free Software Foundation, to enable her to hire an expert witness.
RIAA Opposition to Motion for Extension of time to enable retention of expert by defendant
[Ed. note. This type of request would not normally be opposed. I wonder if the RIAA lawyers are afraid of something. Like their own expert being exposed for the fraud that he is. Like the judge actually getting to hear from both sides. The bullying nature of these attorneys is exemplified by this dastardly opposition. -R.B.]
