Star Trek Fan Film Lawsuit Will Live On

What the hell? I thought J.J. Abrams said this was over? Didn't he state that hey were resolving this issue? This is a bummer, I guess the people behind Axanar were right when they told everyone not to get their hopes up. frown

Despite the fact that Star Trek Beyond director Justin Lin has urged Paramount Pictures to drop a lawsuit over a crowdfunded Star Trek fan film, and notwithstanding comments from executive producer J.J. Abrams that an announcement would be coming about an end to the litigation, the parties involved in the fight over Axanar continue to lob court filings at each other. The latest comes on Wednesday when plaintiffs Paramount and CBS told a California federal judge that their action remains pending.
