How can we find out what's going on with the lawsuit? Can't Post

I'm sorry if this is posted elsewhere and I've missed it, but is there a date when this is going to be settled? It seems to be dragging on, and I'm wanting some more news--a court date, if nothing else. Anybody know?

Can't help you... but ohhhhh the irony!.... [In reply to] Can't Post


The six major Hollywood studios, joined by Miramax, New Line and DreamWorks, have sued a Tennessee theater owner for allegedly under-reporting box office receipts to the tune of "hundreds of thousands of dollars."

I have a bit of a source [In reply to] Can't Post

I haven't heard from him/it in quite a while however. Last I heard they were gathering and exchanging depositions. I think things get endlessly stalled in every appeal over every point of law. New Line has a great interest in slowing things down as much as possible to delay any kind of resolution. Progress is crawling but I will trawl for some info, just for you friend Patty!

No wonder all writers want to direct: one still has to put up with a load of nonsense, but even if wearing two hats (writer and director), there is one under which one is not called a thief and then raped.

You are a dear, dear man. I've always said so! [In reply to] Can't Post

How's by Mrs. MrCere and the Cerelings?

Yes, please do see what you can find out. This waiting is hard on an old girl like moi.

Mr. Patty sends greetings.

Cheers for looking! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm well interested too, to ta in advance if you can find anything. Smile I've not seen anything across the wires -but- my feeds are quite narrow in nature.
