Settlement has been reached in a massive age discrimination lawsuit against Hollywood studios, the TV networks and talent agencies, The Wrap reports.
The suit, which involved 19 long-standing cases filed against 17 major networks and studios and seven talent agencies by more than 165 TV writers, reached a settlement valued at $70 million today.
“I speak for all class counsel in recommending that all settlement class members accept the settlement. We are honored to represent a distinguished and talented group of clients and class members,” The Wrap quoted Paul Sprenger of Washington D.C., lead counsel for the defendants, as saying.
