The legal battle between Sony and George Hotz (geohot), took a surprising turn. District Judge Susan Illston ruled from the bench, ordering geohot to hand over his computer hard drives to Sony. The electronics maker will be allowed to examine the drives with a fine tooth comb and retrieve information.

Geohot’s attorney, Stewart Kellar did try to block to move, but got short shrift from Illston.

“Here, I find probable cause that your client has got these things on his computer,” she said. “It’s a problem when more than one thing is kept on the computer. I’ll make sure the order is and will be that Sony is only entitled to isolate … the information on the computer that relates to the hacking of the PlayStation.”

Sony is also asking Judge Illston to order Google to surrender the IP addresses and other identifying information of those who have viewed or commented about the jailbreak video on Hotz’ private YouTube page. The game maker is also demanding that Twitter provide the identities of a host of hackers who first unveiled a limited version of the hack in December.

A hearing on that is scheduled next month. Sony is seeking unspecified damages.

    sounds like the judge has already been bit by the Sony-Viirus. It would be interesting to allow you to have and examine the minds of the board members of Sony. I think there should be this order from Ms. God herself. I think then, that would be fair for your chances of the board knowing the truth with this case, whereas they obviously are not the brightest folks in technology, as evidenced by Apple’s numbers and wealth on the books.
