Another Claims Data 'Correction' -- And a Motion by the Objectors to Investigate

There has been a startling new development in the Freelance case at the Second Circuit Court of Appeals: yet another "correction" by the appellees of claims data numbers previously submitted in court records. The objectors' attorney, Charles Chalmers, has asked the court for leave to submit a brief on an issue he describes as "a frontal attack on the integrity of the appellate judicial process" and a record "of amazing negligence."

Our new court papers, viewable at, show the centrality of this issue to one of our core objections: the injustice of the settlement's "C Reduction" provision and the inadequacy of representation of the class because holders of registered and unregistered copyrights have conflicting interests.

Would you be able to explain this (in English vs. legalease)? I am trying to understand it, but have difficulty.

This is indeed technical and complicated -- but also a crucial and fundamental exposure of the settlement parties' chicanery. We're working on getting an interpretive piece posted shortly.
