Warner Bros is breathing a sigh of relief this morning as a St. Louis judge just ruled against Mike Tyson’s tattoo artist’s request for an injunction, allowing The Hangover 2 to be released as scheduled on Thursday. “We are very gratified by the Court’s decision which will allow the highly anticipated film, The Hangover Part II to be released on schedule this week around the world,” WB said in a statement. “Plaintiff’s failed attempt to enjoin the film in order to try and extract a massive settlement payment from Warner Bros. was highly inappropriate and unwarranted.” Warner Bros took the lawsuit very seriously, dispatching two of its top executives to St. Louis on Monday to testify in the case.
