‘Millionaire’ Trial Now in Hands of Jury in Suit Over Whether Producer Deserved More Money
After six years of legal processes and a month-long trial, the case over profits from "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" is now in the hands of a jury, reports Deadline.com.

Although producer Celador, which is suing the Walt Disney Co. over profits, appeared to prove it didn’t earn as much as it could have, the question "is whether it was able to convince the jurors that it was the result of Disney-owned ABC and co-producer Buena Vista TV brokering sweetheart deals among themselves, thus allegedly cheating Celador out of millions — and not because it just made a bad deal," says Deadline.com.

While the trail didn’t provide any smoking guns, it did provide an inside look at the TV network and accounting practices that are now under fire with other self-dealing lawsuits, the article says.
