This thread here is dedicated to the man responsible for defending Nintendo from Universal Studios lawsuit pertaining to Donkey Kong and being a potential reason why a certain pink puff ball is called 'Kirby'.

If anything stated above is wrong, please correct me. Thank you.

I did not know, thank you for sharing! I'm curious how the lawsuit went? I know Nintendo won, I'm curious about the details. Maybe someone should make a documentary on this - King of Kong 2
