A new hope

New Line has hit another snag on the road to Hobbiton.  They've settled their despute with Peter Jackson, but now Tolkien's estate is suing New Line for, get this, promises the studio didn't see fit to keep.

Part of the lawsuit seeks the right to terminate any future New Line production of Tolkien's works - including The Hobbit and its, er, "sequel."  I hope this wins.  There's been enough trashing of the material already.
