RIAA Files "Errata" in Warner v. Stubbs, Correcting "Error" in Motion to Dismiss

The RIAA filed an "errata" in Warner v. Stubbs, correcting its prior motion to dismiss its own case.

"Errata" Correcting RIAA's Motion to Dismiss*

In its initial motion it had said it was moving "without prejudice" in several places, but in its final "ad damnum" clause asked the judge to dismiss "with prejudice".

"Without prejudice" means they could sue again at a later time for the same thing.

"With prejudice" means they could not sue again for the same thing, and that the case is totally closed.
