That one is confusing, since AmigaOne is not SAM, we must be talking about only the AmigaOne project.
Alan Redhouse (Eyetech) withdrew from the scene 2 years prior to the lawsuit.
June 6, 2005
Lawsuit filed April 26, 2007
Not to mention that according to Adam Kowalczyk, Alan Redhouse did not want to market the Micro. Adam said he had to talk Alan into doing this.
Add the fact that the Micro was not considered an Amigaone and the date of the last AmigaOne manufactured goes back to December 2004. I know this because I was talking to someone preparing the last 2 available AmigaOnes for the Garry Hare irc conference, since Amiga Inc. wanted to show that they at least had/had seen an AmigaOne. Nice of them to get around to that so many years after they choose their partner in that endeavor.
So, since no real "AmigaOnes" were available since 2004 and the lawsuit was filed in 2007, I don't see the connection, unless someone is claiming that they knew the lawsuit was inevitable 3 years earlier.
