ENDORSED LETTER addressed to Magistrate Judge Debra C. Freeman from Mary Eaton, dated 11/19/2010, re: Defendants Lime Group LLC, Lime Wire LLC, Mark Gorton, and M.J.G. Lime Wire Family Limited Partnership (collectively, "Defendants"), submit this letter brief in support of their application for an Order, pursuant to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 16 and 45, overruling the objections asserted by the Recording Industry Association of America (the "RIAA"), and directing the RIAA to produce documents responsive to the subpoena served on it by the Defendants on September 23, 2010 (the "Subpoena"). A copy of the Subpoena and the Responses and Objections to the Subpoena served by the RIAA on Defendants on November 4, 2010 (the "RIAA Objections") are filed herewith as Exhibits A and B. ENDORSEMENT: The within application to compel compliance with a subpoena served by defendants on non-party RIAA is denied, for the reason that the Court lacks jurisdiction to enforce a subpoena issued out of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The Court is not persuaded that an exception tot he jurisdictional rule applies in this case. SO ORDERED (Signed by Magistrate Judge Debra C. Freeman on 12/7/2010) (lnl)
