Pete Hines Denied Restaining Order
Pete Hines Denied Restaining Order [ Company -> Update ]
Posted by POOPERSCOOPER Sat 24 Sep 2011, 5:36 PM

I mean Bethesda has been denied a restraining order against the MMORPG being developed:

The latest development in the protracted legal wrangling over rights to a Fallout MMORPG is detailed on Develop, where they have word that a California court has refused to honor Bethesda Softworks' motion for a restraining order against Bulgarian developer Masthead Studios. Here's their summary:

Bethesda first sued Interplay in 2009, before months later a US District Court judge denied its motion for a preliminary injunction.

Bethesda then put a new angle on its complaint. In its second suit, it said Interplay and Masthead could not use assets, characters or narrative belonging to the Fallout IP.

But Judge Walter now claims Bethesda “has not demonstrated that it will be irreparably prejudiced” if the restraining order is enacted.

Bethesda has not shown it is without fault in creating the dispute, the judge ruled.

I'm pretty sure Pete Hines has a few restraining orders to with that smile of his, that smile breaks womens hearts.
