Joel Tenenbaum files appeal from judgment

In SONY BMG Music Entertainment v. Tenenbaum, the defendant has filed a notice of appeal.

So now both sides have initiated their appeal, and the fireworks can begin.

Defendant's notice of appeal

[Ed. note. My prediction: if appeals court reaches constitutional question, it will agree that due process standards as enunciated by Judge Gertner are applicable, but will remand for proper computation of (a) approximate actual damages and (b) proper multiple of actual damages. Court will reject lower court's application of multiple of minimum statutory damages, instead of multiple of actual damages. -R.B.]
