As expected, the additional time has been granted. The reason expressed, though, is surprising imo.October 9, 2019
The Parties further anticipate rescheduling depositions after the new year, but are
optimistic they can achieve an agreement to settle before then.
How disappointing. I was so hoping that the community could some how be rid of BH forever, if only Cloanto could get the court to find Hyperion is guilty of breach of contract, and therefore void the 2009 settlement agreement.
It appears that Trevor personally, and A-Eon as a company, are trying to circumvent the lack of progress on AmigaOS4. Trevor, by purchasing ExecSG and hiring Steve Solie to be the "Team Lead" to work on it, and A-Eon/AmigaKit, as two companies who fund the work for many parts, including the video card drivers. But how is this strange arrangement going to work, as the paid programmers continue to do more and more of the work to improve AmigaOS4, and Hyperion appears to do nothing but insult people, and take them to court, wasting everyone's money?
Come on Cloanto, don't settle out of court with someone you know you cannot trust, instead, kick their arse in court! Just look at the past history of people who have had dealings with Hyperion, and make a wise choice, not the easiest choice. Let a jury decide that the actions of Hyperion and BH have indeed been a breach of contract, and void Hyperion's ownership of the rights to AmigaOS4, then pick up the pieces, and run it like a real company. You've already proven that you can negotiate with all kinds of developers for various software, much better than Hyperion ever could do.
What is the benefit of letting Hyperion off the hook for their terrible behavior?
