Freelancer produced plagiarized work and closed odesk account what can I do?

I had some content created and paid for it unfortunately before I ran it through copyscape. Turns out 40% or so of this 8,000 words was copied and pasted pretty much word for word. I went to ask him to fix it, refund my money or i would have no choice but to report him to odesk. He didn't respond so I reported it, and now he has closed his odesk account. I learned a lesson, never pay a new freelancer until you run the work through copyscape. Is there anything I can do to possibly get my $100 back? Any help is appreciated.
