"Mean spirited tactics..." The Letter Joanne Siegel Never Sent But Should Have
The issue around the letter is that it’s only come to light recently. DC Comics have laid complaint after complaint about Marc Toberoff and his apparent delaying tactics, in particular his apparent reluctance to hand over relevant communications regarding the Siegels and his interactions, the Shusters and the like, to the courts as part of their discovery phases. Each time another round of discovery occurs, another previously unseen document pops up, either only just found, previously contested or otherwise unknown or covered up – name your poison, both DC and Toberoff have thrown those allegations and more at each other in recent times. Toberoff claims that the documents relating to the Shuster side of affairs – the signed letters handing over their half of the Superman mark to DC forever – aren’t accurate and possibly fakes, and in return DC are questioning the veracity of this two page letter, asking why it has taken nearly two years to surface.
Just when you think the case might be settling down, an all new set of threats, allegations, accusations and, in some cases outright abuse, rear their ugly heads. Sadly it seems that nobody associated with this case will come out this with their reputations intact.
