Obviously, the legal claws between Microsoft and Sony are coming to the fore. Legal filings by both companies, in which Sony seeks to fight Microsoft’s billion-dollar acquisition of Activision-Blizzard, offer some new written gossip between the two megalithic companies, both sad to watch and funny at the same time.
The paper dispute is related to Microsoft’s disclosure request seeking to collect documents and emails from Sony executives as part of its defense in its fight with the FTC; The sticky wicket focused on the number of documents Microsoft can access.
Microsoft’s filing alleges that Sony is delaying the process to the point where it believes a court hearing is necessary, while arguing that access to the documents sought is vital to its defense, saying, that the case is “as much about YOU as it is about Xbox and Activity.” Sony’s response argues that Microsoft is asking far too much information, comparing the breadth of its discovery request to “obvious harassment.”
As a reminder, the case isn’t expected to go to trial until sometime in August, so maybe we’ll all be expecting more of the same legal-speak whining until then.
