If Hotz did sign up for PSN then it means he accepted Sony's EULAs. In the US EULAs have quite strong legal hold and that's why it is important to determine whether he did accept them or not. They specifically deny the right to modify your hardware in any way or form, and that's the whole point here.

What I would recommend to Geohot?
GeoHot please gather all the posts of sony in "Internet"---where sony stated that they wont remove "OtherOS". And also gather the ones reporting that "OtherOS" was removed---and submit them in court to judge.
If judge will not react---then it proves that judge is paid by sony, thats all.
