I've been receiving reports from around the country of new RIAA cases against individuals being filed. Just for the heck of it I took a look to see whether the RIAA had filed new cases against individuals in April, in the Eastern District of New York and Southern District of New York. I found 1 in the Southern District, 2 in the Eastern District.
So it appears that their representation to Congress that they had "discontinued initiating new lawsuits in August" was a total fabrication.
