CBS is being sued because they allegedly stole the idea for the instant jump technology from a guy named Anas Abdin who has been working on a game called Tardigrades for years. The show's method of propulsion is remarkably similar to the game's ideas. The game has been shown and widely discussed on youtube and Steam for years.
CBS hired a high power legal team who tried to get the case dismissed. Judge said No and granted discovery to Anas so his legal people can have access to the private info of CBS writers who are also on Steam. Their histories will be looked at closely to see if they visited the Tardigrades pages and/or discussed the Tardigrade ideas.
IMO, it's obvious the similarities between the game ideas and the TV show ideas are pretty damning for CBS. If the Tardigrades creator can afford to push the trial, he may end up with a large check.
