The United States Supreme Court declined to hear the case of Jammie Thomas-Rasset, the Minnesota woman famously sued by the RIAA (sub nom Capitol Records) in 2006 during its multi-year litigation campaign. Thomas-Rasset has already gone through three trials and numerous appeals in this matter, and currently faces a judgment of $220,000 held by the RIAA. While the RIAA claims it has been willing to settle this matter from its inception, Thomas-Rasset has protested throughout the proceedings that she is unable to pay what the RIAA demands. Thomas-Rasset contends there is no way the RIAA can collect on its judgment.
