In Capitol Records v. Thomas-Rasset, the RIAA has opted to request a new trial.
Notice of election for new trial
[Ed. note. Not satisfied with a judgment for 6500 times their actual damages, the RIAA has opted to spend additional time and attorneys fees on a trial that cannot result in a higher amount than that, and may well result in a lower amount. Hopefully Judge Davis will reach the constitutional issue next time around, and limit the plaintiffs to the constitutional limit, would be around $1.40 per infringed work. -R.B.]-
