Savage v Council on American-Islamic Relations, Inc. et al.

Stipulation to Allow Filing of Second Amended Complaint; Stipulation as to Form of Answers & Joinder in Pending Motion & (Proposed) Order


In December of 2007, radio talk show host Michael Savage filed suit in federal district court against the Council on American-Islamic Relations, alleging copyright infringement and a violation of federal racketeering laws for using excerpts of Savage's radio program to criticize him and the content of his show. In response, EFF and the law firm of Davis Wright Tremaine LLP filed a motion for judgment on the pleadings, asking the court to dismiss the lawsuit because CAIR's conduct was clearly protected by the First Amendment and the fair use doctrine.

This is the stipulation to allow filing of a second amended complaint; stipulation as to form of answers and joinder in pending motion and (proposed) order.
