Submission + - Juror from recent RIAA trial speaks

Damon Tog writes: Wired posted some quotes from a juror who took part in the recent RIAA trial. Some interesting statements include:
  • "She should have settled out of court for a few thousand dollars," Hegg said. "Spoofing? We're thinking, 'Oh my God, you got to be kidding.' "
  • "She's a liar," added Hegg, who just returned home following his 14-hour night shift.
  • "She lied," he said. "There was no defense. Her defense sucked."
  • "I think she thought a jury from Duluth would be naïve. We're not that stupid up here," he said. "I don't know what the fuck she was thinking, to tell you the truth."
