What Ever Happened to the Woman Who Claimed She Created the Terminator/Matrix?

I think this was going to court, and it was gaining some serious steam. I'm not sure if this is old, or still on-going...but she has evidence that she supposedly came up with and wrote The Terminator and The Matrix but I guess her ideas got stolen.

Anyone else hear anything about this?

It was all a load of BS as far as I know. There were a lot of fake reports about things happening, but in reality the case was dismissed from the court system.

Mother of the Matrix

Everything I've read about her case sounded like made up stories. She never actually brought any evidence to court, so I can't say she actually had a case. She just made a ruckus on the internet.

The biggest con attempt joke I saw was a guy who claimed he invented Power Rangers and had pictures of children in costumes to prove it. Of course, he didn't realize that the show didn't originate in America.

Some guy is suing Michael Jordan and Nike because he looks like MJ and it has caused him emotional pain. Now, that's a big con attempt joke.

Then I hope he is awarded physical pain as well.

The B.S. Meter exploded, and was a sign that the case was pointless:

Whoops you're right, dammit, apologies just re-watched V for Vendetta this evening. Was wondering where Joel popped into my head from.

On a sidenote, anyone elses dollar theater nicer than some of your full price theaters? It's really bizarre.
