I don't need to give anyone here all the backstory, but Tanner Fokkens has just published a 48-page independent technical analysis of the evidence against <Billy>. The analysis goes into exceptional detail on exactly why the different arcade and MAME transition screens appear the way they do. The analysis is backed up with expert verification statements by John Kowalski, Barry Rodewald (MAME developer), Jeremy Young, David Race, Wes Copeland, and Carlos Pineiro.

You can read the whole document for yourself here:

Isn't this just the same stuff we figured out already in the dispute thread and other forum topics? It's more a comprehensive review of the technical side, rather than new revelations. But I will say it has more names attached to it that are experts in their respective field, so it's harder for BM to dismiss it in that regard (even though he will anyway).

Judge: Didn't you know MAME draws level transitions different to original arcade hardware?

Billy: No. [Turns to lawyer] Can I sue this guy too?

Newly discovered photo from mortgage brokers score shows a machine with a non-standard joystick.

Nothing burger. Rule about joystick wasnt in place until 2009. Unlikely anyone would get over 1m with a stick like that though unless it was mechanically limited to 4way. It is strange that the machine isnt on in any of the pics though...
