Attorneys In Copyright Suit Appeal Discovery Sanctions, Contempt To 7th Circuit
Mealey's (November 2, 2015, 2:26 PM EST) -- CHICAGO — Two attorneys, who represented an adult entertainment firm in a 2011 lawsuit over purported online copyright infringement, argued in an Oct. 29 appellant brief to the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals that a lower court’s assessment of discovery sanctions and contempt against them were improper and out of proportion with the harm supposedly caused by their purported misconduct (Lightspeed Media Corp., et al. v. Anthony Smith, et al., No. 15-2440, 7th Cir.).
