RIAA Damages Reduced

Jammie Thomas-Rassert of Minnesota was the first defendant in an RIAA music-piracy lawsuit to go to trial.  She lost big, appealed, the trial judge decided he mis-instructed the jury on the law and ordered a new trial, she lost again, although even bigger–$1.92 million–and appealed again.   A federal judge just reduced the “shocking” damage award to $54,000.  Good news, perhaps, for BU’s own Joel Tennenbaum and the $675,000 damage award imposed by a jury last summer.
