Winnie The Pooh's Case Gets Trashy

Disney is being sued for allegedly cheating Pooh's heirs out of millions of dollars in royalties earned by the Pooh franchise. This litigation had already become quite ugly, as WeirdOfTheNews noted earlier.

Now it seems plaintiffs were recently found to be in possession of thousands of pages of documents they shouldn't have had, including many of Disney's confidential legal documents. Disney lawyer Daniel Petrocelli is accusing plaintiffs of sneaking onto Disney's property and stealing the documents from desktops, and he's seeking to have the case dismissed because of it. But plaintiffs' lawyer Bertram Fields says his private investigators legally took the documents from Disney's outdoor trash bins, the L.A. Times reports here. These guys don't mince words.
