RIAA suddenly walks away from old, contested P2P case


One of the oldest contested file-sharing cases has come to an abrupt and unexpected end. In a motion filed last month, but only uncovered today by Ray Beckerman, the RIAA has dismissed a two-year-old lawsuit filed against Joan Cassin. The dismissal is without prejudice, which means the RIAA could sue Cassin once again, but Cassin’s attorney would likely argue that the label’s recent dismissal is a final adjudication on the merits; more on that below.
