lord of the rings 4 - the lawsuits

Our heroes Frodo and Samwise, having managed to destroy the One Ring in the Mount of Doom, return home only to find themselves slapped with lawsuits by various people who claim descent from Isildur, for destroying their rightful property.

Actually, that is apparently the ONLY lawsuit not taking place in the wake of the Peter Jackson/New Line fantasy movies based on JRR Tolkien's book.

The latest to enter the heroic field of legal battle were Tolkien's heirs, suing New Line for some reason I can't keep track of. Jackson sued New Line but then made nice. An accounting company is suing. A bunch of New Zealand actors are suing.

Maybe I can get in on this - after all, there's plenty of cash in the Lord of the Rings kitty...
