RIAA drops suit against grieving family

From ArsTechnica:
The RIAA is famous for suing anyone, anywhere, no matter how unlikely the target or how bad it makes them look. Apparently, even its avarice has limits, as the group has decided to drop the suit against Larry Scantlebury's estate. Scantlebury was named as a defendant in one of the RIAA's lawsuits. He recently passed away, and the RIAA graciously decided to stay the case for 60 days while his family grieved his loss.

In response to the uproar surrounding the situation, the RIAA has decided to drop all proceedings against the estate. In a statement, RIAA spokesperson Jonathan Lamy said that "out of an abundance of sensitivity, we have elected to drop this particular case."
