Court throws out RIAA attempt to sue little girl

A judge in Michigan has thrown out a case where the RIAA attempted to sue a small child for file-sharing, after failing in its attempt to prosecute the child's mother. The recording industry attempted to have a "Guardian Ad Litem" appointed, which would have made it possible to sue Britanny Chan, the daughter, who was 13 at the time of the alleged acts; they also sought to have Brittany's family pay for the expensive guardianship. They failed to meet the procedural requirements for this, and the court threw out their case. Link (Thanks, NelC!)
