Hope they win in the SCOTUS!
She won't. Here's a good summary as to why:
I've read in the past about her case and this is what I remember being her main problems.

1) She had bottom of the barrel lawyers in all of her trials. If I remember correctly at one of the later trials she was actually represented by law school students who prior to the trial basically bragged that this case was going to be "easy" to win. Practicing law for real may just be a little tougher than it seems in class, boys.
2) She has been perceived extremely negatively by juries, which has definitely led to the size of the judgements against her.
3) She's been her own worst enemy when testifying, but that relates to #1 in large part. She lacks a credible excuse for her behavior and seemed to jurors to be a liar and trying to cover up what she did. That has worked heavily against her in reaching a verdict.
4) She has consistently displayed an outsized ego and an erroneous belief that she can beat the charges by going to court when in fact she has probably had the weakest case of anyone to ever challenge the RIAA. I would call her delusional.

In summary, she's got a terrible case and she's tried to win it on the cheap and the outcomes are predictable.
Basically all of the critical evidence points to her having committed the crimes in question, and she has been unable to offer any reasonable alternative explanation that would defend her from this evidence. Hence the courts will find her guilty every time.
