No Further Continuances in Parmeter v. AFM

In the AFM's ongoing legal battle with three recording musicians, U.S. District Judge Margaret Morrow has approved a final trial schedule, and ordered that there be no further continuances.

In a filing explaining their request for an extension, the AFM's two law firms cited reasons ranging from an AFM attorney's unexpected family emergency to AFM lead counsel's concentration on the seniority rights of pilots in the merger of Delta Airlines and Northwest Airlines.

AFM attorneys also cited "substantial urgent business that cannot be postponed, including the conduct of a significant hearing on an urgent intra-union matter that will take place during the second week of November."

Counsel for recording musicians David Parmeter, Anatoly Rosinsky, and Andrew Shulman agreed to the extension.

The jury trial is set for June 9, 2009 at 8:30 AM, or the next jury trial date available thereafter.
