Citing the July 27 trial in the Joel Tenenbaum case, the record label plaintiffs have asked Judge Michael Davis for an extra three weeks to respond to Jammie Thomas-Rasset's Motion for a New Trial, Remittitur, and to Alter or Amend the Judgment. The motion indicates that Thomas-Rasset does not oppose the motion. It also indicates that the government has not yet decided whether to file a motion in support of the $1.92 million verdict; the government did file a brief in defense of the $222,000 verdict in Thomas-Rasset's first trial.
Assuming the motion is granted, the labels' brief would be due August 12, and Thomas-Rasset's reply August 19.
