Labels ordered to pay legal fees

June 26, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Record labels including Vivendi's Universal Music Group were ordered by a judge to pay more than $100,000 in legal fees to an Oregon woman after they dropped their music-piracy lawsuit against her.

A U.S. District judge in Portland approved the fee award totaling $107,834 to Tanya Andersen on Tuesday, three years after the disabled single mother was sued over alleged copyright infringement. Her lawsuit accusing the industry of racketeering and fraud is pending.
