Strange doings in Lashaana Straw case in Boston

I can't quite figure out what is going on in the case of Capitol Records v. Lashaana Straw in Boston. This is the case in which the defendant, unrepresented by counsel, had entered into a "settlement" with the RIAA, but Judge Gertner rejected the settlement due to the fact that it had called for a judgment to be entered which was for twice the amount of the settlement.

Now, for reasons which are not apparent, it appears that an attorney from Milton, Massachusetts, entered a non-electronically-filed "appearance" in in the case in late January.

[Ed. note. Don't ask me what it means. I'm just reporting the facts. -R.B.]
