The ABC/PP Lawsuit Has A New Villain
Posted January 12, 2014on:
Currently PP and ABC continue to meet with a judge on different dates pushing this lawsuit along albeit very slowly.
The next meeting is scheduled for March 13th. What is concerning is the presiding judge. The judge assigned to this case is Robert Hess. Robert Hess is unfortunately known as not being a fair judge; most often siding with defendants. He has been criticized as being prejudice against minorities and women. Regardless of whether you support PP or ABC in this legal battle this news is concerning. There is definitely a possibility that Judge Hess could create a “resolution” that really ties both parties hands into not being able to do anything with the shows. This court case has the opportunity to also create case law regarding the soap genre which could impact potential future cases. Therefore this impacts all fans of the soap genre.
