A federal court has ordered the attorney for JOEL TENENBAUM -- HARVARD Law professor CHARLES NESSON -- to pay $2,249 in attorneys' fees to the major record label who sued his client for copyright infringement on a file-sharing network, reports DIGITAL MEDIA WIRE.
The court had found TENENBAUM guilty in JULY (NET NEWS 7/31) and ordered him to pay $675,000 in damages.
This case concerned NESSON's failure to produce certain items requested during the discovery portion of the file-sharing lawsuit. SONY/BMG said it was then forced to file a motion to compel production of the items, and sued NESSON for the attorney's fees related to filing that motion.
