Judge Dismisses FGO Motion Against South Florida Musicians Association

In a hearing held on October 6, Judge Langer of the 11th Judicial Circuit of Florida dismissed Florida Grand Opera's Motion to Compel, filed against South Florida Musicians Association as a fishing expedition in an attempt to secure privileged internal communications from the Union. The judge handed a victory to the Union, agreeing that the information sought by the Opera is not relevant and that they are not entitled to pry into the internal affairs of the Union.

While the Opera's motion has caused a 4-month delay, the favorable ruling will now allow the Union to proceed with its case against the Opera, charging that the Opera has violated a recording contract and infringed on the intellectual property of the musicians the Union represents.
