. . . he realized how bad the film was and dropped the lawsuit out of pity.

I was thinking the exact same thing! Why associate this pile with an award winning short story?

Ellison is a total douche...

While I have not read his "award winning story"...everything I have read of his was pretty crappy...likely In Time was superior to his elitist crap and hes embarrassed to have the comparisons made given how poorly In Time was received...

Anyone this sue-happy needs to be dumped out a plane without a parachute...he got credit for Terminator? REALLY?!?!? You would think that any half assed sci-fi writer would realize there is pretty much no such thing as a unique story...I just wish someone would call him on something he "copied" and teach him a lesson...problem is he probably hasn't written anything in so long that anyone he did copy off of is dead by now.
