I already TOLD you guys that the original article was inaccurate. That correction is to be found everywhere.

So it might have been nice if people had read that...

So I repeat, there are no indications anywhere that she is in line to win, or even that her case is credible. There was a legal argument that the RICO element of her case was inadmissable, but that has not transpired; that is ALL that has happened, that her case has not been derailed on a technicality.

Some more fact checking would benefit you, CA.

I guess I'll actually post one of the sites I have been sourcing from... from The Hot Blog:

"December 07, 2004
More on Terminator/Matrix v Sophia Stewart
On October 28, a student newspaper at Salt Lake Community College printed an erroneous story on Sophia Stewart's RICO lawsuit against The Wachowskis, Jim Cameron, Gale Anne Hurd, Fox and Warner Bros and others.

Poorly reported by one Martha Carter, the story says that "Monday, October 4th 2004 ended a six-year dispute" and that Ms. Stewart has " will recover damages" and that "she will soon receive one of the biggest payoffs in the history of Hollywood, as the gross receipts of both films and their sequels total over 2.5 billion dollars."

None of that is true. What is true is that on September 27, 2004, US District Court Judge Margaret M. Morrow made a preliminary ruling that the RICO element of the suit would not be thrown out on purely legal grounds, though some of the charges were dropped against Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox. There was no finding of fact emerging from this hearing and not even the glimmer of a trial that would find guilt or innocence.

The story ran on the community college website, was picked up by Manhunt.com, which bills itself as "The digital resource for blazin' urban news." Eventually their story was passed to and published by Ain't It Cool News. By the time I was alerted to the posting and went to AICN, the link was gone. Presumably, someone explained just how inaccurate the story was and AICN did the responsible thing at that point."

Please feel free to look at the ruling:

http://moviecitynews.com/notepad/2004/041207_wach.html

You will noe that seven of her claims were dismissed outright, unless she re-submits them, just as I mentioned earlier.

hmm this is interesting but i find it hard to believe that james cameron would copy the story from some1 and make a movie out of it. james cameron was a genious, and he told how he made the story of terminator in the special edtion dvd. and it was convincing.

and the timeline is also a question. she wrote the book in 1981 and then gave it to I DONT KNOW WHO in mid 1983. james cameron had almost certainly started production of THE TERMINATOR by then because the movie got released in early 1984. so there's her lie caught i guess

You know this chick was lying. She just wanted her fifteen minutes of fame, and wanted some money.

I dunno if this got reported elsewhere, but this case got dismissed in June, after no evidence was offered.

I mean if she had actual evidence that the Wachowskis stole the matrix, i might take into consideration her claim that she wrote, but you know she was lying when she sued James Caremon also.

The case is old news its been around for some time now. The fact that she finally got WB in court is amazing to me. I hope she gets nothing from tihs. Stupid old woman just wanted some camera time. And btw i would like to see that Twilight Episode about the matrix, Links please.
I agree with others, no matter who wrote or directed or acted in the matrix movies i will still be interested in the story and will be my all time favorite movie trilogy.
