Jeff Trexler has updates on the Siegel family lawsuits against Warner Bros. and DC Comics over the rights to Superman and Superboy: The Superman trial is set to begin on May 13, and the Superboy trial after that.
Those trial dates are preceded by a settlement conference deadline and court-ordered mediation — if the parties settle, of course, the trials are off — jury selection, motion hearings and the like.
Trexler also sifts through some of the available discovery papers and finds information related to the finances of the Superman franchise. It’s early, and those documents number more than 200 pages. However, I’ll definitely be giving them a closer look later today.
