8th Circuit Reinstates $222,000 Statutory Damages Against File Sharer

ST. PAUL, Minn. - Determining that a jury award of $222,000 from almost five years ago was constitutional, an Eighth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals panel on Sept. 11 reinstated the award in favor of a group of six plaintiff record labels against a Minnesota woman accused of online file-sharing (Capitol Records, et al. v. Jammie Thomas-Rasset, No. 11-2820 and 11-2858, 8th Cir.; 2012 U.S. App. LEXIS 19040; See 8/1/11, Page 19.).
