There seems to have been a lot of talk about script writers suing Quentin Tarantino over the movie idea of Django Unchained. Does anybody know what happened to that lawsuit? Was it settled or did the idea disappear into thin air?
The case is still going on.
The latest order was on July 7, 2016. The order granted "Consent Motion for Extension of Time to Answer" by the defendants (Columbia Pictures Industries, Inc.)
Here is the summary of that order:
