Duluth, Minn. – Ars Technica provided courtroom coverage of
the first day of file-swapper Jammie Thomas-Rassett’s third trial, where a jury
will be tasked with determining how much she should pay for sharing 24 songs
online. The first trial’s results were discarded due to faulty jury instructions;
the judge slashed the second trial jury’s award of $1.92 million to $54,000,
and that still-disputed amount has led to the third trial that kicked off
today. The trial has been limited to two days, comprising a re-cap of the
evidence and arguments presented at the last two trials for the benefit of the
new jury.
