Take Two: Subpoenaed Over Hot Coffee
Those hoping for the now somewhat tedious Hot Coffee scandal to reach a conclusion will be disappointed today as Take-Two, Rockstar's parent company, reveals to shareholders that it has been subpoenaed by the District Attorney of the County of New York.

The legal demand, received by Take-Two on June 19, orders the release of undisclosed documentation from various points in the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas development lifecycle, from October 2001 onwards.

Specifically, the documentation to be filed includes that, "...relating to: the knowledge of the Company's officers and directors regarding the creation, inclusion and programming of hidden scenes (commonly referred to as "hot coffee") in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the submission of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas to the Entertainment Software Rating Board for a rating, and the Company's disclosures regarding hot coffee; disclosures and presentations by the Company of certain events, including acquisitions, partnering arrangements and earnings results; invoices from, payments to, and termination of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and retention of Ernst & Young LLP; acquisitions by the Company in 2005; certain compensation and human resources documents with respect to the Company and certain of its current and former officers and directors; and documents concerning the activities of the Company's Board of Directors and Committees thereof."

Take-Two simply said on the matter, "The company is fully cooperating and providing the requested documents."

We'll let you know if anything interesting happens.
