Putting the studios' conflicting requests aside, a Los Angeles federal judge has set a January 6, 2009 trial date for 20th Century Fox's lawsuit over Warner Bros. Pictures' screen rights of "Watchmen". The decision on the trial date has been dropped by U.S. District Court Judge Gary Allen Feess on Tuesday, September 2 during a meeting between attorneys.

Since the trial date has been laid down, the rest of this year will be used for discovery and deposition proceedings. Various reports noted that Feess has also pointed that Fox should refrain attempts to get preliminary injunction as the case was too complex to be resolved in a short matter of time.
