No problem everyone...

It just shows that we need to stick together or else it will be that much easier to tear us apart as a people. I remember when she asked around to see if anyone had an old version of the Matrix, as the older version on tape had parts missing that quoted word for word from her script.

Interestng, browneye... so I looked it up and read on wikipedia that it was not dismissed in the last section... but thanks for the head's up.

"According, for the foregoing reasons, (1) Defendant Gary S. Brown's Motion to Dismiss ( docket #14) is DENIED and his Motion to Change Venue to the Central District of Los Angeles, CA (docket #15) is DENIED; (2) Defendant Dean Webb's Motion to Dismiss (docket #18) is DENIED and his Alternative Motion to Change Venue (docket #26) is DENIED; (3) Defendant Michael T. Stoller's Motion to Dismiss (docket #20) is DENIED and his Motion to Change Venue (by joining in other Defendants' motions) is DENIED; (4) Defendant Jonathon Lubell's Motion to Dismiss (docket #21) is DENIED, and his Motion to Change Venue (docket #22) is DENIED. Defendants are directed to file an Answer to the Complaint by no later than September 23, 2008."

DATED this 28th day of August, 2008.

BY THE COURT:
DALE A. KIMBALL
United States District Judge

So although I guess at this time it was not dismissed, it's not won,either... but it looks like the defendants (Time Warner) have until the 23rd to respond.

Thanks again.

The reason you have not seen any of this in the media is because Warner Brothers parent company is AOL-Time Warner... this GIANT owns 95 percent of the media... let me give you a clue as to what they own in the media business... Ne w York Times papers/magazines, LA Times papers/magazines, People Magazine, CNN s, Extra, Celebrity Justice, EntertainmentTonight, HBO, Line Cinema, Dreamworks, sweek, Village Roadshow..many, many more!................Damn another CONSPIRICY solved!!!!!!!

Almost every major Hollywood blockbuster was stolen.. Didn't yall know?

That's why the corporations have the money but lack the creativity... They need the money to steal the creativity...

I'm not going to follow up to see how accurate this is because I don't care enough. Having said that & assuming it is true, it's about time this sister is compensated for her works.

WHO CARES????
that woman aint doing shyt for you or me!
I cant understand this whole..."she won/we won" mentality.....
her successes are hers and her's alone... this int 1908 when twe had to prove to the world that black people are creative and that we have rights....
All that has been proved....
so we all need to focus on achieving what WE as individuals can

ENOUGH WITH THE MONOLITHIC TRIBALISM BULLSHYT!
