RIAA asks for more time in UMG Recordings v. Lindor; defendant objects

In UMG Recordings v. Lindor, the RIAA has asked for more time to file its reply papers, in support of its motion for "discovery sanctions" and voluntary dismissal "without prejudice", to respond to Ms. Lindor's opposition papers, and for more time to file its opposition to Ms. Lindor's Rule 11 motion.

Defendant did not consent.

This man questions if a lawyer is guilty of malpractice when they take on more cases than they can properly handle, resulting in delays and mistakes that prejudice opposition parties in their suits? The RIAA plaintiff lawyers are claiming the need for delay due to other case(s) they're involved in, yet this denies the defendant the swift resolution of justice and only increases her costs. Such actions can only be to the benefit of the RIAA plaintiffs who wish to financially punish all defendants for daring to defy them, as well as holding them in legal limbo for as long as possible.

Wow! You did everything short of calling them some very "unmentionable in polite company" names! I can only hope that the judge has a "Come to Jesus" meeting with these RIAA maggots!
