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).

Given the proliferation of "standards", I believe the best way of presenting dates is whatever method has four digits for year, two digits for day, and uses letters for the month. Do that, and the order won't matter much, it will still be crystal clear what you mean.
The problem with the EU-format for dates is that they don't always include the year, or sometimes have it in just 2 digits. So they simply make things worse, as they deviate from an international standard. But now we are getting away from the subject kind off.

So how long might this thing last, or what kind of timescales are we talking about here before it goes to trial, and andy rulings etc? I know the courts go slow sometimes. and I expect that if WotC (and Hasbro) wants to, they can drag things out, until TSR runs out of money.

for all those supporting the date-order theory of the mistake it's a 9 that's in the 'wrong' spot so it's not October anyway.

The cause of the error had nothing to do with the software.

The case has been dismissed (voluntary notice of dismissal by NewTSR) - there is currently no case, so nothing further will happen.

It's without prejudice. so they can refile but currently there is no timeline.

At this rate, GaryCon won't have to worry about them riding on Luke's coattails and the GaryCon staff's work when Michael announced they were moving their TSR con across the street during the same weekend as GaryCon. Because they won't be able call it that anymore lol.

ok, read my comment as IF they refile (which other posts indicated was likely they would do).

I am aware that they have for now run away, and thus actually showing more sense of self-preservation than many D&D-characters seem to do. ;)

Post it to Facebook as a response to LeNasa denying it.
I think he deleted the comments that were posted. I found the original post. And a few other comments (all absolutely hilarious - comparing Lanasa to a brave knight) but not this one.

He did post a video of the clownfish discussion of the lawsuit (which was so bad I had to stop listening after 2-3 minutes) with GAME ON! So I asked if he was planning to refile the dismissed suit.

Edit: He responded (to me asking re: refiling): His post "take a guess."

I'm REALLY looking forward to what their next step is - this is MST3K levels of amazing.

only sadness is the people contributing - they're up over 2K.
