Duck and Cover has obtained the filing schedule for the upcoming year in the Interplay v. Bethesda court case. Suffice it to say that we won't see an end to the case anytime this year, unless the two parties settle out of court. Here's the breakdown:

Motion(s) for Joinder of Parties and Amendment of Pleadings to be filed by: February 28, 2010
Requests for Production and Interrogatories to Parties to be served by:1 March 30, 2010
Third Party Discovery to be taken by: July 2, 2010
Fact Depositions to be taken by: July 16, 2010
Rule 26(a)(2) Expert Witness Disclosure to be served by: August 13, 2010
Rule 26(a) (2) Expert witness depositions to be taken by: September 30, 2010
Requests for Admission to be served by: October 8, 2010
Rebuttal Expert Report(s) to be served by: October 22, 2010
Rebuttal Expert depositions to be taken by: November 19, 2010
Summary Judgment(s) Motions to filed on or before: December 3, 2010
Bethesda to circulate draft pretrial order: December 10, 2010
Interplay to comment on draft pretrial order: December 17, 2010
File draft pretrial order to be filed by: December 30, 2010

I'm not a lawyer, those last few lines say "pretrial." So does that mean the actual "trial" isn't going to take place in 2010? Whether by intention or not, Betheda could be effectively killing Interplay's Fallout MMO with time. By the time the trial is finished, the tech that Interplay is building PV13 on could become old and unmarketable.
