No Soup For You!

The LotR Trilogy Films has grossed almost $6 billion worldwide, but New Line Cinema is being sued by the Tolkien Trust who complain that the terms of their 1969 contract have not been fulfilled and are seeking $150 million in compensation. The most recent development in this case is that the presiding judge has ruled that the Tolkien Trust has established a legal foundation for fraud, but cannot seek punitive money for damages. This may pave the way for an alleviating settlement before the October 2009 trial that challenges New Line Cinema's production of the two-part adaptation of The Hobbit.
