Lawsuit update Can't Post

An update on the status of the lawsuit. Fourth Age (the entity representing the Tolkien Estate) has appealed the court's decision to deny its special motion to strike the defendants' counter-claims against it to the Ninth Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeal, which has previously ruled that the denial of such a motion can be appealed prior to a final judgment in the underlying case. The result of this is that the underlying case will now be put on hold while the appeal winds its way through the process, which is likely to take at least a year.

Interestingly, while each previous step of the lawsuit has been widely reported, I haven't seen any media reports of the appeal (which was filed last month) at all.

'But very bright were the stars upon the margin of the world, when at times the clouds about the West were drawn aside.'

                                    Most lawsuits end in a negotiated settlement Voronwë_the_Faithful Send a private message to Voronwë_the_Faithful Sep 24 2013, 3:47pm
