Judge to RIAA: You need to pay up.

Again an Oklahoma judge has thrown out a lawsuit by RIAA and ordered them to reimburse the defendant for fees incurred while defending herself in the lawsuit.

“…Court did conclude that the Fogertv factor regarding the need for compensating the prevailing party under the particular circumstances of the case was, in fact, met. The Court noted that where, as here, the prevailing party is the defendant who, by definition, receives no award for damages at the successful conclusion of a meritorious defense, considerations of compensation become particularly important.” (Recording Industry vs. The People)
