RIAA sues a disabled stroke victim – Who had already sent a notice to the RIAA that he had not violated any copyright laws – Before he suffered the stroke.
Note a few other... interesting... things they have done.The RIAA has now brought suit against a stroke victim in Michigan in Warner v. Paladuk:
Summons in Warner v. Paladuk*
Although the defendant John Paladuk, an employee of C&N Railroad for 36 years, was living in Florida at the time of the alleged copyright infringement, and had notified the RIAA that he had not engaged in any copyright infringement, and despite that the fact that Mr. Paladuk suffered a stroke last year which resulted in complete paralysis of his entire left side and severely impaired speech, rendering him disabled, and despite the fact that his disability check is his sole source of income, the RIAA commenced suit against him on February 27, 2007.
These are also against disabled persons
Oh, and lets not forget:
The local Michigan lawyer being used by the RIAA in the Paladuk case is the same lawyer who was accused by a 15 year old girl of telling her what to say at her deposition in Motown v. Nelson. In the Warner v. Scantlebury case, after the defendant died during the lawsuit, the same lawyer indicated to the court that he was going to give the family '60 days to grieve' before he would start deposing the late Mr. Scantlebury's children."
