The famed Chapterhouse vs Games Worhshop case has been ongoing for over 2 years. It's over at last...

Here is a summary from Larry at BoLS.
One month ago, Chapterhousemade an announcement on thier facebook page that they have had assets frozen pending an appearance in court to have the decision reversed.
Over the weekend, word broke that both parties reached a settlement. Paperwork has been jointly filed (see below) by both parties with the Chicago court to withdraw all pending litigation due to a private settlement that had been reached by both parties.

This case has been a long twisting road full of victories and defeats for both sides along the way. Here are the final motions:
