Fusion Garage on Arrington suit: “sad rants of a person championing a losing cause”

The TechCrunch/Fusion Garage saga continues, and as predicted the lawsuit Michael Arrington brought against his former partners over the CrunchPad/JooJoo tablet is only the start of the mud-slinging.  Fusion Garage have released a public rebuttal to Arrington's comments, suggesting that they do, in fact, own the IP involved, that they have already received $3m in funding with another round imminent, and that the TechCrunch founder's complaints are naught but "the sad rants of a person championing a losing cause".
