Pringle v. Adams, No. 12-55998 (9th Cir. Feb. 21, 2014).
The 9th Circuit affirmed summary judgment for the defendants -- the Black Eyed Peas and related parties -- in a copyright infringement case. The Court found: "The evidence in support of Plaintiff, however, raises only the barest possibility that Defendants had access to [the song], and Plaintiff does not argue that there is a 'striking similarity' between [the song] and Defendants’ allegedly infringing work." The 9th Circuit also affirmed sanctions against plaintiff for violating a court order regarding service of process on one of the defendants.
