Update, February 23: Star Control's creators are countersuing Stardock.
Star Control creators Paul Reiche III and Fred Ford have filed a countersuit against Stardock Systems, claiming Stardock are infringing on their copyright, not the other way around.
Back in December last year, publisher Stardock Systems filed a lawsuit against the original creators of Star Control.

Stardock claimed the creators infringed upon the copyright of the Star Control franchise - which Stardock bought from Atari in 2013 - with their sequel game Ghosts of the Precursors.
In response, Reiche and Ford have now filed a countersuit against Stardock in an attempt to take back control of Star Control and Star Control 2.
