Legal Update: Disney asked Judge to start up the CA legal battle again

UPDATE(11/9/2018): Judge Anderson has ordered to lift the stay in order that damages, if any, may be determined as soon as possible.

Hello Again VidAngel Supporters,

We had a significant legal hearing on Friday and, for those of you who are following the legal battle, you deserve an update.

What’s At Stake

As a reminder, Disney, 21st Century Fox, and Warner Bros. have been fiercely fighting this Chapter 11 process from the beginning. Their actions suggest that their only goal is to put VidAngel out of business to leave families without an option for filtering movies and TV shows on modern streaming devices.

What Happened

VidAngel appeared before Utah Judge Kevin R. Anderson to defend itself against Disney’s motion to restart the California legal battle. We’re hoping that Judge Anderson will allow this successful Chapter 11 restructuring to continue without needless obstruction.

The hearing went from 10am until around 4:30pm. In the end, Judge Anderson took his decision “under advisement” and committed to write an order as soon as possible.

We hope that Judge Anderson will deny Disney’s motion (and let us find a more cost-effective way to resolve the dispute in Utah).

Thank You

Many thanks to all those who supported us Friday. It was so inspiring to see your faces.  We’ll keep you updated.

Sincerely,
