Judge Denies Sony's (SCEA) Motion to Shorten Time - Update: Sony Goofs Bigtime

"Sony Computer Entertainment America's motion [PDF] asking the judge in the SCEA v. Hotz case to set an earlier date to hear oral argument on its motion to do expedited discovery has been denied.

"But as I'll explain, I think it may indicate that George Hotz's motion to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction/improper venue will likely be denied as well and that they'll continue this case in California.

""Expedited discovery" in this context means the avalanche of subpoenas SCEA is asking permission to serve on various entities to try to find the Fail0verflow guys, who SCEA hopes to tie to Hotz. The purpose of all that is to demonstrate that the case should stay in California. The hearing had been set for March 11, and they'd asked if it could be speeded up to February 9, and the judge just said no. So, March 11 it is."
