    The Estate response (HBO Arbitration) has been filed:

    https://www.scribd.com/document/4136...GdiqpqQhhMlf-Q

    'HBO's efforts to escape the results of this simple analysis fail'. (I hope so!!)

    The Estate arguments in this doc. look very persuasive. They cite plenty of legal precedents and make it sound as if HBO are trying to escape arbitration by claiming legal precedents that don't actually exist/ are not relevant / relate to free speech. It looks like a strong case to go to the next step.


    Hearing date is 15th July (To decide on if it can be arbitrated and who will arbitrate).

    have to say I am impressed by this. If estate didn’t care wouldn’t have even filed in first place. Doing good job atm imo

    No. Far from the end. Hearing date 15th July is just to decide on if it can be arbitrated and who will arbitrate.

    The arbitration itself is a whole other thing that would happen after July, IF the judge agrees it can go ahead. Probably 2 further steps, IF the judge agrees to send it forward.

    Legal cases are almost never quick. Or straightforward.

    I have a feel HBO is going to just settle with the Estate.

    If the judge decides it should go to the arbitrator, do HBO and the Estate get to decide and mutually agree which arbitrator they want to use? If so it could also take time to sort out if they want different ones.

    The original HBO contract (the one with arbitration clause) had various statements about this, which the original parties had agreed to. Basically, if the 2 sides don't agree, then a judge would decide on the arbitrator. The arbitrator would then decide if the case is suitable to arbitrate (if the judge hasn't already done that on 17th July.)

    How long is a piece of string? Please be patient. It isn't possible to put a timescale on these things, especially so early in the process.

    Can someone who is legally minded answer this question for me? If lets say HBO loses does the contract signed years ago still remain or do they re-negotiate or is is the contract null and void?

    I'm guessing it would depend on why HBO 'lost'. There are a number of elements to the contract......
