Normally I'd do the copy/pasta thing, but it's too long and I'm no lawyer and can't pretend to understand it all.

First Bleeding Cool is a far left sjw site.

Lets look at the first line - Once upon a time, Antarctic Press announced that they were to publish Jawbreakers, the crowdfunded graphic novel written by Richard Meyer, accused repeatedly of hate speech and of encouraging hate speech.

-Richard Meyer has 3 kids that are mixed race. Yet the left keep trying to call him racist. Also no examples of his hate speach in the article but just empty character assassination.

Also in the same first paragraph -Mark Waid called the publisher to talk about that decision

-Really just talk?? Clearly there was more or there would be no lawsuit.

 

There is plenty of articles out there besides bleeding cool which is run by far left SJWs

While there is a lot of history to this here is a couple videos about the latest stuff. Again this lawsuit is getting big but thankfully Mark Waid looks to be screwed.

 

This is a short one

 

This one is an actual lawyer it starts at around 1 hour 13 minute

 Here is more from the same lawyer but I have not watched it so I do not know where it starts

 

It is time these far lefty nutjobs get push backed.

A video from Richard Meyer talking about the case. It is long but it boils down to Waid is trying to drag this out in order to bankrupt Meyer even though Meyer has more money. There is also a lot of other good info. In the end Waid really has no case but is just trying to drag this out. It is not easy to fight the machine but thankfully Meyer has the ability. Waid is huge with the degressive left and one of Marvel's biggest stars. Most people can not raise a go fund me legal fund like Waid so the far left get away with their hate. This is like the youtube person The Quartering being able to sue his SJW attacker.

tl;dr

Antarctic's publisher denied Waid influenced his decision, and also stated that other Antarctic staff and freelancers had expressed concerns.

Fact is there was a verbal contract that is recognized under Texas law.  Meyer and AP are both in Texas. AP even announced on Twitter  they will publish the book. The lawsuit is not that Waid forcibly ended the contract but it is Tortious Interference. Waid interfered with the contract. He scared AP out of it. Waid is a HUGE employee of another company and the biggest company by far in that industry.

What the employees feel or people that are not even employees (freelancers) feel does not matter. The owners of AP had a verbal contract. Walmart does not run their business on what employees think for example or any other company. The owner of AP had a verbal contract that he even announced on Twitter.

As far as AP saying there was no influence there is plenty of messages that show different. Go through videos and it shows lots of evidence such as texts.

 

Fact is there was no reason at all for Waid to even contact AP about one of their clients contracts that had no involvment with him at all. AP and Meyer did not involve Waid or Marvel.

 

Bleeding Cool is such a joke of a SJW website that another site called Bleeding Fool was created to combat SJW comics.

Your statements about Waid scaring AP out of publishing the book are directly contradicted by AP's publisher's deposition. Waid, as per the deposition, did *NOT* interfere with the contract, as his actions didn't affect the decision. The Texas legal standard for tortious interference isn't met.

You might want to check the requirements in Texas for a verbal contract to be enforceable, as well as the Texas Statute of Frauds (because it puts some limits on verbal contracts). A claim of a verbal contract here probably wouldn't work because of the Statue of Frauds requirements (unless you're claiming that the physical goods involved in this - which would include all the comics sold - have a combined price of less than $500).
