Since I am sure we will be spending a lot of time discussing this court case, I decided it might make sense to dedicate a permanent thread to news connected with the suit, and put it in a prominent spot on the website. So this thread will serve as a place to post updates and comments on it. The most recent posts will appear at the top.

UPDATE #3(May 1 2016)
On the Journal of Nuclear Physics, Andrea Rossi made a comment which provides more details than previously in connection with his complaint. Rossi was asked about guided tours that had been given to visitors at the plant. He responded:

We have the movies of them, because the plant had cameras for security issues, and photos, but all this information cannot be published before it is disclosed in Court.
I can make this statement, though: all I said in this blog about the 1 year test of the 1 MW E-Cat will be sustained by undisputable evidence in Court.
I say this now: all the main investors that gave real money to IH before IH bought other IP around have repeatedly visited our plant. I can also add this, because it is already public: the ERV made a partial report every 3 months and the results were the same as in the final report. This means that IH received a report in April, a second report in July, a third report in October, before the final report. The results of all these reports were the same, moreless. IH not only never criticized the reports, but shown the reports to Woodford and in an official conference in China, using them to collect investments. The comments of Darden about the reports can be read in his interviews after the Chinese conference.
So, for one year of test IH accepted with great enthusiasm the reports, used them to get enormous investments from funds and never made a single communication to the ERV, who sent to them all the preliminar reports, not a single word in negative.
The situation changed as soon as payment time came.
UPDATE #2 Some more items have been added to the court docket. Now Industrial Heat et al have until June 12th to file responses to the complaint.
