"Kung Fu Panda" Suit Proceeds To Discovery

An update on that lawsuit against Dreamworks Animation for theft of the "Kung Fu Panda" idea. Terence Dunn says he pitched the idea of a spiritual kung fu fighting panda bear to the studio in 2001 but the studio said it was not interested. Later, it created the film "Kung Fu Panda," which made millions.  Last week, the judge hearing the case allowed the plaintiff to proceed to the discovery phase, denying the defendants' motion to bifurcate the case and to require Mr. Dunn to prove damages. More here from The Hollywood Reporter.
