The RIAA is getting a hard time from a judge in New
Mexico, woo for him.
A federal judge in New Mexico has put the brakes on the RIAA's lawsuit train,
at least in the US District Court for New Mexico. The case in question is part
of the RIAA's campaign against file-sharing on college campuses and names "Does
1-16," who allegedly engaged in copyright infringement using the University
of New Mexico's network. In a ruling issued last month but disclosed today by
file-sharing attorney Ray Beckerman, Judge Lorenzo F. Garcia denied the RIAA's
motion to engage in discovery. This means that the RIAA will not be able to
easily get subpoenas to obtain identifying information from the University.
