Thomas to get new lawyer team for RIAA case appeal According to her official website, Jammie Thomas, who was recently served with a $222,000 judgment, will be finding new lawyers for her appeal against the RIAA.
Her former lawyers, Brian Toder, and associates, were hardly the best choice for the type of case and that was made clear with a lackluster non-existent defense. Toder is a maritime law specialist.

Ms. Thomas talked out about why she had chosen Toder originally for the case. “I had no idea who could represent me for my case and Mr. Toder was listed on another attorney’s weblog, Mr. Ray Beckerman, as being the attorney from Minnesota who handled cases such as mine,” she also said, “I feel Mr. Toder performed as best he could considering the financial situation I am in and how much I could afford to pay him and his firm.”

Jamie Thomas continues to take donations to be used towards her new appeal. Her website says the following, “She [Thomas] confirmed that the donations collected here are still going into her legal defense fund and will be used to finance her appeal. She is now in search of a capable attorney ready to take the appeal either pro bono or for what is raised through fundraising efforts.”

Nailed for $220,000...i think that's an understatement.

I hope she gets the fine dramatically reduced BUT I have no sympathy for the stupid people out there as she is one of them. Read this:

http://minnesota.publicradio.org/display...ownloadingday3/

Not only did she NOT move her files out of her sharing folder but SHE FRAKKIN' USED KAZAA. I mean, who the HELL uses Kazaa anymore??? Riddled with viruses, slow transfers and just flat out terrible. I stopped using Kazaa about 5 years ago and anyone with half a brain would /should do the same.

Anyway................she lied regarding her hard drive. Second to last paragraph in the article.

"Record companies said Thomas was sent an instant message in February 2005, warning her that she was violating copyright law. Her hard drive was replaced the following month, not in 2004, as she said in the deposition."


STUPID STUPID STUPID She deserves a good 10K smack in the Kazaa!!!

Stupidity should seriously be painful

My favorite part is this "The hard drive in question was not presented at trial by either party"
Where is the physical evidence?
What they convicted her with logs on paper?
Her lawyers suck
Anyone can spoof logs
