[Ars] "Fleeing"? Sabotaged hard drives? Hotz's lawyer responds to Sony

It was reported yesterday that George Hotz "fled" the country in order to escape... a civil case? Sony claimed that the infamous hacker had sabotaged evidence in the case and was using his location outside the US as an excuse to not comply with the court's orders. Ars caught up with Stewart Kellar, one of Hotz' lawyers, who rejected both accusations. Hotz is in South America on a trip he had planned before the lawsuit was filed, and Sony has been given all the components it needs to access his hard drive.

So did Hotz sabotage any evidence? Kellar says that assessment is way off-base, pointing to the lack of detail in Sony's filing. "SCEA's lawyers are using intentionally ambiguous language so that the public, and the Court, might assume the worst. The 'components' SCEA is talking about are hard drives' controller cards. The neutral [third party examining the drives] subsequently had to explain to SCEA the form and function of hard drive controller cards," Kellar told Ars. "It is a stock part that can be purchased at any electronics hardware store. Those controller cards have since been provided to the neutral so the point is moot."

So am I to assume that the controller cards they are talking about are raid controllers? Sony is so shady.
