Il giudice Michael J. Davis, ha significativamente ridotto la precedente condanna (pari a 1,5 milioni dollari), ridefinedola in un ammontare pari a 2.250 dollari per canzone, per un totale di $ 54.000.
La Corte ha affermato: “an award of $1.5 million for stealing and distributing 24 songs for personal use is appalling. Such an award is so severe and oppressive as to be wholly disproportioned to the offense and obviously unreasonable. In this particular case, involving a first‑time willful, consumer infringer of limited means who committed illegal song file‑sharing for her own personal use, an award of $2,250 per song, for a total award of $54,000, is the maximum award consistent with due process”
