Awod writes "Robert Santangelo and his lawyer, Jordan Glass, have raised 32 defences against the music industry's charges. Santangelo and his lawyer demanded a trial by jury and are filing a counterclaim for allegedly damaging the boy's reputation, distracting him from school and costing him legal fees.Santangelo also claims that the record companies, which have filed more than 18,000 piracy lawsuits in federal courts, "have engaged in a wide-ranging conspiracy to defraud the courts of the United States.".

Santangelo's mother was also sued in 2005. However, The RIAA dropped its case against her in December but sued Robert and his sister Michelle instead. Michelle has been ordered to pay $30,750 in a default judgment because she did not respond to the lawsuit."
