It looks like this whole case rests on whether Jeremy can actually produce any document that shows a 50/50 split. This can be the corporate charter, or it can be some sort of paper with both their signatures. IANAL, but even the YC application alone may be sufficient if it indeed does say they're joint owners.

As a side note, Sam Altman's recent blog post [1] vilifying Jeremy really rubbed me the wrong way. Sam is hardly a neutral player in this, and his post really felt like an attempt to ruin Jeremy's reputation in Silicon Valley. Sam really should have kept his mouth shut here, because depending on how this case plays out, it may be his own reputation that may be endangered.
