Important 2nd Circuit appeal on attorneys fees against RIAA, Lava Records v. Amurao, scheduled to be argued May 19th

The appeal from the lower court's denial of defendant's attorneys fees in Lava Records v. Amurao, a "throwing in the towel" case -- where the RIAA sued the father without any reason to think he had committed copyright infringement and then voluntarily dismissed the case to pursue his daughter -- is scheduled to be argued Tuesday, May 19, 2009, at 2:00 P.M.

The argument will be held at the Federal Courthouse, 500 Pearl Street, in the ceremonial courtroom, on the 9th floor.

Mr. Amurao is represented by Richard A. Altman.

Same old song and dance from these RIAA-tards. I hope that Mr. Altman rips them a new one.
