Historic trial underway in Duluth this morning

There was a subdued air of anticipation at Duluth's Federal Building this morning as Jammie Thomas' case against a majority of the biggest record companies on Earth neared its 9 a.m. start time -- but things are expected to heat up after jury selection.

If you're not familiar with the case, Mark Stodghill did a nice piece for the Duluth News Tribune, but the best story I've read so far actually comes from the Great White North, where the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's picked up an AP wire story that actually features a few comments from Thomas' lawyer, Brian Toder.

As expected, Thomas is remaining quiet. When I contacted her yesterday via e-mail, she said she had no comment at the time (after consulting with Toder, of course).
