More papers have been filed by the RIAA and by Ms. Lindor in UMG v. Lindor, as the RIAA continues to try to prevent discovery into the agreement among the record companies as to joint prosecution and settlement of th p2p litigations. The RIAA has opposed Ms. Lindor's motion to compel answers to her interrogatory and document request from March, 2006. On July 6th the RIAA filed an unusual "surreply" to Ms. Lindor's reply papers, to which Ms. Lindor's lawyer responded on July 9th.

If the don't want to reveal this information, why don't they just buy Ms. Lindor off for twice her current legal fees. This could be the least worst solution for the RIAA.
