Gotta say some of TOLDJA's claims on how fandom stands on this are insane.
I couldn't believe what I was reading from her piece there. When it comes to legal cases there are two sides so I'm not so inclined to just side with the heirs. Second, they probably could have settled but depending on how Toberoff is he may not be going for just a settlement and depending on what is on these documents they may very well show what his intentions are. If he has stopped acting in the best interest of his clients and is looking out for the biggest cut, if you ask me thats monstorous for. I don't agree with the way she went off on WB that way when most of us at best have a superficial understanding of the case. Ultimately you also have to look at the cost benefit if they give the rights back, they may have single handedly put hundreds of people that work for dc out of a job, so is that any better.
