TSR TSR3.5 Voluntarily Dismisses Lawsuit

A lawsuit filed by TSR3 against D&D owners Wizards of the Coast a few days ago was voluntarily dismissed.

Dismissal without prejudice means that the suit can be filed again. The suit lasted two days from the 7th to the 9th of December. The IndieGoGo fundraiser to fund it is still running.



At first glance, the below document is dated 21st October so it’s reasonable to assume that it is not related to the recent filing; however, apparently that date is incorrect. The correct date is in the footer, and this is indeed the dismissal of the recent filing and can be found on PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records).

So I'm guessing that actually filing again will be a stretch goal? :unsure:
Or top donors, Rank Onion on Belt or higher, can get access to a special discord room to crowd-write the next lawsuit. You have to understand this is not a quick fight. This is a long war against Wokists of the Coast. So starting today, TSR LLC will be funding a promising pre-law student from Guildford Technical Community College, Justinian NasaLa, to get his law degree with a sole focus of bringing these libelous dogs ruining our collective childhoods to heel. He will be a weapon, forged for a singular glorious purpose, to free D&D from the shackles Hasbro has placed on it. For as little as a $499 platinum membership to the Dungeon Hobby Shop, you can help choose a line in our forthcoming lawsuit about where WotC specifically harmed you on a vintage copy of Dungeon Geomorphs II.

I'm not a lawyer but shouldn't that be "withdraws" lawsuit. Again, I could be wrong, but I believe it's the judge who decides whether a case is dismissed or not, and with or without prejudice.

Posting this not in regards to his politics, but in regards to his financial misappropriation.

Justin Lanasa is 100% a grifter who doesn't think laws or social norms around money apply to him. When he ran for office there were 5 people who donated to his campaign. Four of them were Justin Lanasa, Justin W. Lanasa, Justin W. Lavasa, and Justin Lanaga.

This guy puts as much effort in his illegal finances as your average 12 year old does in faking their identity to log onto a website they've been banned from or are too young to access. He's -absolutely- trying to scam people out of cash, here.
I know the whole thing is pretty funny - and I don't want the fun to stop - but this whole TSR 1-2-3 drama stinks of erratic behavior and, perhaps, of mental disorder. Someone is not having a good time over at TSR...
Well, y'know, lead was in paint, gas, and a lot of other things for a long, long, time before we figured out it caused behavioral issues, brain damage, and emotional stunting when taken into a child's bloodstream through inhalation, ingestion, or even prolonged physical contact...

It would go a long way to explain this sort of behavior.

Sadly, it's not actually illegal to donate to your own campaign, even if you do it under various dumb names. You can donate to your own campaign as much as you like. It's other people donating to you where the rules apply.

Reading the dismissal, it is a dismissal of "CIVIL ACTION NO. 7:21-CV-0210-D".

Looking at the other documents on Tenkar's site, the complaint about the trademarks is identified as "Case 7:21-cv-00210-D Document 1 Filed 12/07/21 Page 1 of 10".

So this dismissal is as far as I can understand, the dismissal of the complaint filed 12 December 2021.

EDIT: Wait ... date formats, you foil me yet again! 12 December is tomorrow ... :D I guess "12/7" means "7 December" in USA ... Or is it "12 July?"

That's not what the dates on the above document say. It's dated 21st October, and the footer states that the document was filed on 12th September.

EDIT: Well, the date in the body of the document is clear. The date in the footer would be 9th December if it's in American format, which would place it after the date of dismissal, so I'm guessing it's actually in international date format.

I apologise but for my own muddled mind, how is "12/07/21" parsed as 12th September? Not trying to be cute here, I live in Sweden and our date formats are YEAR-MONTH-DAY, so I get really confused with other formats.

Thanks!

This is 100% the correct notice of dismissal. The document is just dated wrong.

Check the footer for the court stamped date. 12/09/21

I checked PACER this is the notice of dismissal.

In the US it's mm/dd/yyyy. Because, just like the metric system we have the freedom to ignore standards used everywhere else for ... reasons.

From the document as it appears in the OP:

In UK date format, that would be 12th September 2021, which is how I originally read it. In US format it would be 9th December, but that's after the date of dismissal.

EDIT: Or maybe the date of 21st October is when the original claim was submitted, and the date in the footer is when this dismissal was submitted, which would make way more sense.
