Roll On, Golan (v. Ashcroft)
May 19, 2004: The Court held a case management conference in Golan v. Ashcroft, the suit challenging the constitutionality of Congress's "restoring" copyright to certain works in the public domain. Lawyers at the Center for Internet & Society and Edward Lee from Moritz College of Law at Ohio State University are handling the case. Having just lost its motion to dismiss, the Government tried to stay discovery pending its proposed motion for summary judgment (same motion, different name? Why not just call it a motion for reconsideration?) Our local counsel, Carolyn Fairless and Hugh Gottschalk of Wheeler Trigg & Kennedy, succeeded in convincing the Magistrate Judge that discovery should go forward. We are looking at trial in about one year. Look for more news soon about this case.
