It has been decided
Thanks to Chimene, we’ve learned that Yahoo posted an article about the resolution of the Nancy Stouffer vs JK Rowling (and Scholastic, and WB) case here.

We’re going to try and hunt down the court’s ruling so I can see exactly what trademark and copyright cases the court cited (if anyone has it, please send it to staff@the-leaky-cauldron.org), but for now, we can report that the court said that “Stouffer had lied to the court and doctored evidence to support her claims.” Stouffer was fined $50,000 for this “pattern of intentional bad faith conduct.”
