Exonerated P2P defendant Tanya Andersen should be awarded $107,834 in court costs and attorney fees, a federal magistrate judge ruled yesterday. It’s the largest attorneys’ fees award to date against the RIAA, but a far cry from both the $298,995 sought by her attorney and the RIAA’s reckoning of just under $30,000. Of course, all the RIAA needs is for 27 college kids to settle at $4,000 a pop and it’s got the award covered.

This is, of course, the line that gets me:
The labels argued that there was no need for Andersen to have more than one attorney present at most hearings and depositions—despite having as many as six attorneys of their own in court on occasion.

It’s so insane
