Third Thomas-Rasset trial moved to Nov. 1
Round three in the record labels' copyright suit against Jammie Thomas-Rasset has been moved from Oct. 4 to Nov. 1. This third trial will focus only on damages, after the court granted the defense's motion for remittitur, slashing the jury's award in the second trial from $1.92 million down to $54,000. The labels opted for a third trial rather than accepting the reduced amount.
