Judge Denies Sony's Request for Expedited Discovery Against Geohot
Geohot finally got a break today, when the judge presiding over his case denied Sony's request for expedited discovery. "A hearing on SCEA’s Motion is now scheduled on March 11, 2011 at 9:00 a.m." As a result, Sony cannot send out any of the subpoenas mentioned here.

"On Thursday, there will be a hearing on the Temporary Restraining Order (“TRO”) which was previously granted without a hearing."
If a hearing is not held by February 10, 2011, Mr. Hotz will be forced to surrender his storage devices to Plaintiff SCEA, and will continue to be restrained, without a hearing or consideration of the substance of the TRO Order. A hearing is also needed so that Mr. Hotz may limit the breadth and vagueness of the TRO.
