Since Ausir is staff here at the Codex, I'm pretty sure it's not stealing if I grab something he wrote somewhere else and post it as my own, right? Better check with Judge Chasanow.
While the full results of the hearing regarding Bethesda's motion for preliminary injunction against Interplay in the Bethesda v. Interplay case were sealed from all but the lawyers, we managed to acquire the following bit:
“Motion Hearing held on 12/10/2009 re  MOTION for Preliminary Injunction filed by Bethesda Softworks LLC - Argued - "DENIED" as stated on the record by Judge Deborah K. Chasanow. (Court Reporter - Sharon O'Neill) (td, Deputy Clerk)”
What does it mean? Preliminary injunction is "an injunction entered by a court prior to a determination of the merits of a legal case, in order to restrain a party from going forward with a course of conduct until the case has been decided". Bethesda wanted the court to order Interplay to stop its work on Project V13 and its sales of the Fallout Trilogy pack until the case is decided; however, judge Chanasow decided not to. Until the case it fully settled, Interplay is free to proceed.
