Heads up for June 6th judgment on C. Tolkien's lawsuit. Can't Post


Quote
<snip>
However, at a hearing on June 6 Christopher Tolkien will ask a Californian judge to back his claim that he can “terminate” film rights to The Hobbit. He is said to be furious with the New Line studio, which earned £3 billion from the Rings trilogy. Tolkien’s lawyers accuse New Line of “accounting chicanery”. Warner Bros, owner of New Line, declined to comment.

So place your bets.
I think the court will find NL in breach of contract, and they should pay what is owed to the Tolkien Trust.

May your beer be laid under an enchantment of surpassing excellence for seven years!
