Quentin Tarantino moves forward with 'Pulp Fiction' NFT auction despite Miramax lawsuit

UPDATE (12:00 p.m. ET): A Miramax representative provided a statement to The Block from Bart Williams, a partner at Proskauer Rose LLP and attorney for Miramax in their lawsuit against Tarantino, after this article's publication:

"Any claim that Tarantino has 'defeated' this lawsuit is verifiably false as Miramax’s claims and the litigation remains pending. There’s been no attempt to dismiss any of Miramax’s claims by Tarantino’s team, nor have they filed any counter claims or motions against Miramax, and since Miramax filed its lawsuit, the promotional website and Twitter account for the proposed sale have scaled back the unauthorized use of imagery from Miramax films (including Pulp Fiction). For anyone to presume Tarantino victorious at this time by merely filing his response to the complaint is inaccurate, misleading and premature to say the least."

On December 9, Tarantino and his production company Visiona Romantica filed a response to Miramax's complaint and had not followed up since, the Miramax representative says. The parties involved in the lawsuit are scheduled to meet in court on February 24, 2022.
