– Jammie Thomas-Rasset, the file-swapper twice found guilty of copyright
infringement in jury trials, will head back to court for a third trial on Oct.
4, which will decide whether the amount of damages she was ordered to pay the
record labels was fair, the Copyrights & Campaigns blog reported. The first
jury ordered Thomas-Rasset to pay $220,000, while the second jury awarded damages
of $1.92 million. The judge reduced this amount to $54,000, and the labels
offered to settle for $25,000 — but Thomas-Rasset refused, and the issue of
damages will now be decided at a third trial.
