20th Century Fox has resumed their legal actions against Tribune Entertainment and its coming MUTANT X TV series.
As expected, the studio filed new motions with the U.S. Court of Appeal 2nd Circuit on Tuesday to stop Tribune from using the name MUTANT X, arguing that the program's title and concept is uncomfortably close to their own X-MEN franchise, possibly even causing damage to it.
Previously, a judge did rule that Tribune's use of the title did violate Fox's rights, but, strangely, he didn't order a title change at that time and allowed production to continue on the series.
Now, Fox is seeking a permanent injunction against the program or monetary damages should the title continue to be used.
In a statement on the matter, the studio declared, "Fox is confident that it will ultimately prevail."
