Spider-Man lawsuit may not have seen its last act

Manhattan federal Judge Katherine Forrest set a May 27 trial date Thursday after lawyers for former director Julie Taymor asked that the case move forward because a settlement was never finalized.
Taymor filed a lawsuit in November 2011, saying her copyrighted written works were violated when she was fired last year and the musical's script was rewritten after the $75 million production had trouble getting past previews. It has since become successful.
Both sides had originally expected a quick settlement when they informed the judge on Aug. 30 that they had reached agreement.
