In Capitol Records v. Thomas-Rasset, the defendant has filed a motion for reconsideration requesting the Court to now reach the constitutional due process issue which it had declined to reach in its prior decision setting aside the verdict on the ground of remittitur, but not on the basis of due process.
Defendant submitted Judge Gertner's decision in SONY v. Tenenbaum, and pointed out to the Court that a third trial in the Thomas case would likely reach the same result as the first two trials.
