It would appear that Joel Tenenbaum’s options have, after more than nine years of legal battles, finally run out. After having his appeal denied by the Supreme Court back in May, Tenenbaum’s request for a new jury trial was denied. From The Verge:
Former Boston University student Joel Tenenbaum’s $675,000 fine for illegally downloading and sharing 30 songs will stand, says a Massachusetts court. US District Judge Rya W. Zobel has denied Tenenbaum’s request for a new jury trial, and said that the fine — which had already been reduced once previously, only to be reinstated — was appropriately determined by the jury and would not be lowered.
