Does this mean it will go to the Supreme Court now?

No. The next step will probably be an appeal filed by Joel. That would go to the 1st Circuit.

Regardless of guilt or innocence this is a RIDICULOUS place to be at. Surely this person was a minor when the alleged events took place. No minor should ever have to pay out 1/2 million dollars in fines. The world is looking at this and laughing at your law.

Agreed.
