Judge "Clarifies" Order in Capitol v. Foster: RIAA has 60 days to finish "reasonableness" discovery; no modification of scheduling order

In Capitol v. Foster, Judge West denied the RIAA's motion for "clarification" of his scheduling order, and indicated that:

-when he said they have 60 days to complete discovery he meant 60 days;
-he saw no reason to extend the commencement of that period until after his ruling on their separate "reconsideration" motion, since the two activities could take place simultaneously;
-he saw no reason to change the part of the order that permitted Ms. Foster to supplement her attorneys fee request after the close of discovery.
