on leaked court documents, filed by Sony's lawyers against Geohot (George Hotz) and fail0verflow. Today, further legal docs, regarding the case, have surfaced on the net. This time around, we get to see Geohot's legal response to Sony's recent accusations. These documents, which were filed by Mr. Hotz's attorney today, give us a first look on his defense.

Geohot's attorney describes many flaws in Sony's original legal motion, and goes on to detail them. He pokes holes in everything from Geohot's alleged relationship with team fail0verflow, all the way to Sony's assertion that California holds jurisdiction over the case. Based on these recent docs, it seems like Sony will have a formidable foe in Geohot and his lawyer.

He won a big case a while ago against the MPAA and RIAA.
Also surfacing today, was a large collection of previously unreleased documents, recently filed by Sony's lawyers. In these docs, Sony cites such websites as PSX-Scene, PS3News, Slashdot, Twitter, and more, as evidence against Geohot. Many of you may remember this tactic from the original jailbreak cases back in September.
