Mar 8, 2011  •  Post A Comment

The dispute between the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and Dick Clark Productions over the Golden Globes broadcasts appears likely to end up in court following a ruling Monday by a federal judge that struck down a motion by Clark’s company to dismiss a complaint filed Nov. 17, 2010, by the HFPA, reports Deadline.com.

In a statement, HFPA President Philip Berk said, "We are thrilled that the federal judge ruled in our favor that our lawsuit, claiming that DCP has no right to the Golden Globe Awards beyond 2011, has merit. We will continue the fight to reclaim all of our rights."

The HFPA has accused Dick Clark Productions of secretly negotiating a deal with NBC for rights to broadcast the Golden Globe Awards.
