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.

  1. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  2. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
