The Howard Schultz lawsuit against PBC has now been set to begin June 15th, 2009, according to the Seattle Times. Given that that date is still 10 months away, there's plenty of time left for all sorts of emails to surface, on both sides of the courtroom.

In other news, the 3 season ticket holders suing the PBC have turned to an innovative solution to the situation - free tickets to see the Oklahoma City Thunderballs. As reported by Greg Johns in the PI today, the three wish to retain their "priority seat" number, and as the expense of traveling to OKC is greater than the value of the tickets, they want free ducats from the PBC.

If his hair were long enough, I'd bet Clay Bennett would want to pull it out after hearing this latest ploy.

I think it's more likely he spit out his breakfast when he burst out in laughter.

Dumbest lawsuit EVER.

I don't disagree that this suit seems to have a tenuous grip on reality, but I'm just thinking of the legal costs that Bennett is incurring because of it. Regardless of whether the case has merit, he has to pay his legal team upwards of $500 or $600 an hour to deal with it.

Terrific call with the Thunderball reference.

As the Chicago Reader points out, Thunderball the film was "slightly bloated" and "a little too mindless to be much fun." Sounds like our good buddy Clay!!
