Submission + - Hotz to Turn Over Computers to Neutral Third Party (groklaw.net)

intellitech writes: This will make a lot of you feel better. Groklaw is reporting that both parties have come up with a stipulation in Sony Computer Entertainment American v. Hotz regarding what Hotz must do about handing over his computers. The new Preliminary Injunction (PDF) now says that he is to turn his materials over to a "neutral" third party, not to SCEA's lawyers, and after the neutral party combs through them, it all is returned to Hotz. All but whatever they "segregate" out of them. He won't get that back until the end of the litigation, should he prevail, which this court at least currently thinks is less likely than that Sony will. There will be a hearing on Hotz's motion to dismiss on April 8, 2011.
