Setback for malicious prosecution lawsuit against RIAA


Recommended Posts


Although the RIAA has decided to stop initiating new legal actions against music fans as part of its war on piracy, there are still a few cases in which the wheels of justice are rolling ahead slowly. One such case is Andersen v. Atlantic, where exonerated former RIAA defendant Tanya Andersen is suing the record labels for malicious prosecution, negligence, and conspiracy. That lawsuit hit a speed bump when a federal judge dismissed some of the claims in Andersen's lawsuit.

In a ruling issued last week, Judge Anna J. Brown ruled that the RIAA had sufficient legal justification to initially file suit against Andersen, saying that they could have "reasonably believed" that she was responsible for sharing copyrighted tracks on a P2P network in 2004.
