MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Brainerd woman ordered to pay record companies $222,000 for the unauthorized downloading of copyrighted music says she presumes her case is over.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal by Jammie Thomas-Rasset of Brainerd, letting the judgment stand.

Thomas-Rasset says she’s not certain what happens next and will have to consult with her attorneys. But she says she assumes that she’s run out of options for appeals in the long-running case, which dates back to 2006.

And the 35-year-old says there’s still no way the record companies can collect anything from her. She says she has no assets and qualifies for energy assistance because she has four kids and her husband isn’t working. Their only income is from her job with the Mille Lacs tribal government.
