No Settlement in 'D&D' Suit

Trial Date Set

Published: 07/16/2014 02:03am
Efforts to negotiate a settlement in the lawsuit over Dungeons & Dragons movie rights have failed and the case is moving to trial, according to the minutes of a conference in the case.  There had been several requests for delays by the parties as they negotiated (see "'D&D' Trial Set for July 1"), but there will be no more; the minutes included the all-caps notice that there would be "no further requests for continuance."

Trial date was set for September 16th.

The case is attempting to resolve conflicting rights to the property:  licensee Sweetpea wants to make a D&D movie with Warner Bros., and Hasbro has plans to make a D&D movie with Universal.
