Appellate Court Rejects 'Freelance' Settlement Parties' Appeals. Next: Back to District Court

The Second Circuit Court of appeals last Thursday summarily rejected the plaintiffs' and defendants' petitions to rehear the court's decision rejecting the settlement of the freelance writers' copyright infringement class action against periodical publishers and electronic databases.

The upshot is that the objectors have prevailed and the case gets remanded to Judge George B. Daniels of U.S. District Court in New York.
