Corbello v. Vallli
Hiller, LLC v. Success Group International Learning Alliance, LLC

Batiste v. Lewis

A local jazz musician, Paul Batiste, sued an internationally famous hiphop duo for copyright infringement. He says the group digitally sampled his songs. Finding no evidence of copying, the district court granted summary judgment for the defendants and then ordered both Batiste and his attorney to pay the defendants’ attorneys’ fees. Batiste appealed. We lack jurisdiction to review the fee award against Batiste’s attorney but otherwise AFFIRM the district court’s judgments.
