As much as I'd rather see almost anything fought over in this case, this doesn't really matter and they have to file the motion that will actually matter at the same time anyway, so I don't see any point in objecting to filing a doomed TCPA at the same time. It doesn't seem likely the Fifth Circuit will immediately reverse itself and it's entirely possible another case comes down saying the TCPA doesn't apply in federal court. In that case, even Waid's douchebag lawyers might not bother filing.

So far as I know, there isn't yet a cert. petition on this, but who knows? There might be by then.

Also opposing this would mean Waid would be almost forced to file a (nearly pointless) TCPA motion now, wasting everyone's time. Maybe even Waid is tired of that.

You said a tcpa motion like this is frivolous because of that ruling? What does not opposing this motion mean for sanctions?

Nothing. It's not necessarily frivolous if they advance a non-frivolous argument why the Fifth Circuit is wrong and should reverse itself.

Hey so about Antarctic Press. Did you know they produced such gems as Warrior Nun, Ninja High School, and Shotgun Mary? You know what all those comics have in common? Rape, racism, naked underage children, and Snoopy from The Peanuts(Not Joking).

But an innocent classic style comic about a giant ape is somehow too hot for them because of made up bullshit about its creator being a "Nazi."

Nazi? But Antartic Press LOVES Nazis. Again, I'm not joking. They are obsessed with Nazis to an unhealthy degree. Now granted, Nazis in their books are usually the villians BUT there are always Nazis. Nazi demon cyborgs, Nazi teachers, Nazi samurias, Nazi Terminator who is part Kenshiro(Yes it was a thing).

P.J. O'Rourke, back when people were allowed to be funny, once said: ''I have often been called a Nazi, I don't let it bother me for one simple reason. No one has ever had a sexual fantasy about being tied to a bed and sexually ravished by someone dressed as a liberal.''

Also one of my favorite plots from a Warrior Nun book is about how the Catholics helped Nazis escape to America after the Holocaust and a Jewish superhero called The Hammer Of Israel who was tricked by a nazi demon into going through a time space portal so that he couldn't stop the Holocaust has to fight his way into Vatican City only to find a church official burning the evidence.

Well, that, and threatening the equivalent of 'you'll never work in this town again' from someone who who could theoretically have used anything up to the Disney corporation to back up his claims.

Allegedly.

Defendant’s Answer and Affirmative Defenses To Plaintiff’s First Amended Complaint

Filed 02/14/20

Note: the complaint was filed 9/19/2018. So a mere 15 months after the complaint is filed, the defendant actually files an answer.

Federal court, ladies and gentlemen. All the justice money can buy.

If he fucked his wife the day that was filed and got her pregnant, he could read the answer to a six month old baby that is now able to sit on is own and is starting to learn how to talk.

I notice it was a response to the first amended complaint. It happened, obviously, but I would have assumed you can't amend your original complaint until the defendant had filed his answer.

But anyway, just like with the Vic case Zaid seemed to be throwing everything and the kitchen sink into the mix. Which makes sense, since if he doesn't say it now he can't bring it up later. Then again, this seems cookie cutter. Libel-proof? Really?

So here's something I don't know about. I know the TI-EC happened in Texas, but this is going federal since Waid's in CA while Meyer is in Texas. Now the question is, is truth a defense for tortoise interference with existing contracts in federal? I know it's not in Texas because Texas is weird about the restatement of torts. Obviously the point is moot if Waid was a lying sack of shit, but hypothetically.

You can freely amend (once) up to 21 days after serving it, or up to 21 days after a responsive pleading (like an answer or a 12(b)(6) motion). Additional amendments require the consent of the opposing party or a motion (which is generally granted up to a point). FRCP 15.

No, because ANY 'advice' would be considered improper as Weid was in no way a party to the contract, nor was asked by a party to advise them.

Some kind of update happened on Zach's end. If the time stamp craps out, he ends the review and starts talking the lawsuit and Patreon relaunch at 7:40.

Basically,
  • Lawsuit is moving forward after 2 years of Waid stalling.
  • The GFM will probably run out sometime this year because of the lawsuit finally reaching jurisdiction.
  • He is opening his Patreon again so that the lawsuit doesn't eat up on revenue from/for his IGG projects.
