"Sigh"
For anyone interested in a UN-edited more truthful account you can find one here: http://www.filfre.net/2015/04/the-68...-jack-is-back/.
I have seen the official public release of the court documents somewhere online in the past but can't seem to find them at the moment.
The crux of the matter was that Atari stumped up $500.000 and if it wasn't paid back in a month they would gain the Amiga, along came Commodore with a much better offer and the Amiga team went with them.
Atari took it to court saying the Amiga was rightfully theirs but lost, and the rights were confirmed as belonging to Commodore.
The rest is history!
The trouble Atari was in at the time, the writing was already on the wall. The Amiga team made the right decision I think, the Commodore problems started with that ape Irving Gould and his cohort Mehdi Ali much later.
