RIAA Tries to Get Discovery Ruling Without First Consulting Adversary in Lava v. Amurao; Court Schedules October 5th Conference

In Lava v. Amurao it appears that the RIAA attempted to get a discovery ruling from the Judge -- including an order deeming its requests for admission to be admitted -- without first trying to resolve the matter with its adversary, which would be contrary to the Court's rules.

The Court scheduled an October 5th conference.

From the outside it appears that the Plaintiff's lawyers are trying to cut corners now. Perhaps they simply don't have time with all the cases they're now needing to handle to do things in the proper and courteous manner.

Damn! And I had such an urge to post something about RIAA-Richard2 after learning about his newest play from the Lawyer-Thugs playbook. :-(
