Geohot Files Opposition to Sony Restraining Order

Geohot has filed his opposition to Sony's motion for a Temporary Restraining Order, Preliminary Injunction, and Order of Impoundment that was brought against him because of the PS3 jailbreak.

His attorney Stewart Kellar notes that George Hotz is not a resident of California and does not fall under its jurisdiction.

Mr. Hotz is not a resident of California, does not consent to jurisdiction in California, intends to file a Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Personal Jurisdiction and requests this court delay hearing on this TRO until after the court has ruled on such Motion to Dismiss.

Kellar states that Sony is merely trying to scare individuals from using their products in a way it doesn't approve of and reveals that they only provided Hotz with documentation hours before a preliminary hearing in California. (Hotz lives in New Jersey).

Geohot's filing makes it clear that he doesn't classify himself as a hacker, doesn't have any affiliation with the other defendants, and has not produced, manufactured, sold, nor does he have any intent whatsoever to produce, manufacture, or sell, any devices that facilitate piracy or counterfeiting.

You can download the entire filing from here or look here for the introduction.
