The written copy of the judge's decision in Mann v. Ball is at https://www.steynonline.com/documents/9740.pdfCheers
These Dunes were the inspiration for Frank Herbert's Dune
Looks like the case was dismissed because Mann failed to pursue it. Proving damages would have been difficult, so winning may have been impossible.Ball was probably wary of making indefensible inflammatory statements while the case was open. Others were probably wary as well. Maybe the goal was to keep the suit alive as long as possible rather than try to win.
