Second Circuit Also Denies Parties' Petitions for Rehearing

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals has denied the separate petitions by the plaintiffs and the defendants to reconsider last November's ruling by a three-judge panel that the copyright class action settlement be remanded to the district court because of the issue of jurisdiction over claims involving non-registered copyrights.

We have not yet received the orders. However, April 15 docket entries show that the court denied the petitions for both rehearing by the three-judge panel and rehearing "en banc," by the entire court. Last month the court denied a parallel petition by us objectors.

More soon when we have the orders in hand -- including whether it's now on to the U.S. Supreme Court for some or all of us, or back to Judge Daniels in New York.
