Jeff Trexler rounds up some evidence that mediation is slogging towards a settlement in the Superboy/Superman lawsuits, including a comment by Dan DiDio this weekend that “We’ve got SuperBOY Prime (yes, we can say that again).”
However, DiDio’s reference to Superboy is not the only piece of evidence to emerge this weekend. On Friday, the Siegels and Time Warner filed their joint progress report in the Superboy and Superman lawsuits. This report states that the parties have not reached a settlement, despite four mediation sessions attended by their lawyers and DC President and Publisher Paul Levitz.
But that does not mean that the situation is hopeless. The progress report concludes by noting that after the mediator returns from vacation, “he would be contacting the parties … to potentially continue settlement discussions.”
