The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals set a deadline of Aug 9th for Napster to file an emergency emergency federal appeals court brief that would give Napster a possibility to resume its service.
Napster went offline 2nd of July when company experienced problems with their song-blocking database and even that they got the bug fixed, U.S. District Judge Marilyn Patel ordered Napster to stay offline until company can provide bullet-proof song-screening solution. Napster argued that it can provide 99.4% efficiency with its current screening technology (used to block illegal song from the service), but court insisted that company has to achieve 100% success rate.

After (if they file them) Napster has filed their briefs to appeals court, RIAA has 28 days to respond to Napster's brief.
