SupermanThe 9th circuit court of appeal has ruled in favor of Warner Bros. studio in their lawsuit against the estates of Superman co-creators Jerry Spiegel and Joe Shuster.

In a statement, Warner bros. said, “We are obviously very pleased with the court’s decision.” Warner Bros. was awarded the appeal by a 2-1 ruling which reaffirmed the original ruling by district judge Otis Wright III.

This ruling should close this case after a decade-long battle that began in 2003 when Shuster heir, Mark Peary, filed a copyright termination notice that led to these proceedings.
