For those who view the RIAA as akin to Land of Mormor have another baffling alleged abuse to cite. Nineteen-year-old Ciara Sauro was sued for allegedly sharing 10 songs online. RIAA lawyers sued her. She didn’t respond so the lawyers secured a default judgment. She was a bit busy getting a transplant in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Now it is the RIAA lawyers who refuse to respond.
She is facing over $8000 in fines as a music pirate. Suffering from both the transplant and depression, Sauro is unsure what to do. Her mother says “I make $8.25 an hour. She can’t work. This child is very sick. I mean, what am I supposed to do?”
Nice. Like the recent excessive lawsuit by Wal-Mart attorneys, this story raises questions over the judgment and priorities of legal counsel.
