Default BattleTech - Harmony Gold Dismissed

May 4th, 2018, 08:32
@Dualshockers Harmony Golds claim against BattleTech has been dismissed in court.



A few days ago, the first half of the case has been resolved, with the court dismissing Harmony Gold’s case against Harebrained Schemes with prejudice, which means that it cannot be brought up again. Below you can see an extract of the ruling.

Thanks Farflame!

Was this the official ruling? Because otherwise this is old news.

While HBS seems to be safe, we will still not see any unseens until the case against Piranha is resolved (hopefully in the same way; looking good so far, but could take at least another year).

Pity Harmony Gold didn't have to pay HBS lawyer fees.

Of what I read they could have pushed for that, but I guess they were just glad to have this negativity behind them.

I hope PB sees this through to the bitter end and HG is slapped down for good. We can then finally have the unseen back.

This should bode well for future endeavours in the Battletech Universe. I'm glad to see this ugliness finished with.

A perhaps sad commentary by a lawyer on the state of this lawsuit:
-
http://www.sarna.net/news/harmony-go…yer-weighs-in/
-
Summary - a new lawsuit with different mechs could still be presented; also this was not a judgement but a voluntary dismissal so hbs could just as well as had paid harmony gold to go away (we shall never know).
