Defendant opposes RIAA motion to dismiss counterclaims in Atlantic Recording v. Raleigh in St. Louis, Missouri

In a St. Louis, Missouri, case, Atlantic Recording v. Raleigh, the defendant has filed her papers opposing the RIAA's motion to dismiss counterclaims.

The RIAA's time to file reply papers expires on February 4th, but its lawyers are seeking an extension of time, to which the defendant's lawyers have consented.

Defendant's memorandum in opposition

[Ed. note. Since the counterclaims were interposed as class action counterclaims, defendant could have argued that the damages under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act can be aggregated. See In Apple & AT & TM Antitrust Litigation]
