The Current Legal Status of Crunchpad

According to more documents released from TechCrunch, the legal status of the Crunchpad continues to get grayer (and more angry). 

essentially, the suit now centers around an alleged setup masterminded by Fusion Garage and their PR company.  I think Michael Arrington said it best when he rhetorically asked, "Does this sound crazy?"

Yes, Michael. It does.

You're telling me that two companies plotted against you for months, while working along side you, to systematically steal your idea AND steer the media into thinking that it was your fault the deal fell through because of bad business decisions? 

Maybe.

Or, maybe the Crunchpad died off because two companies with great ideas couldn't settle on the right plan of action.  The interesting thing to note is the stance taken by Fusion Garage.  They insist that Arrington would take this alleged business disagreement and make it out to be like he and his organization created and did all production work for the Crunchpad. 

Clearly, this is a mess.  Internal emails are starting to surface, and the outlook isn't good for FG.  Fusion Garage managed to pull some "Zuckerberg" style slip ups on this one.

What are your thoughts on this complicated case?
