Dick Clark Productions Hit With Lawsuit

Nov 29, 2011  •  Post A Comment

dick clark productions, which settled a dispute over one awards ceremony just a couple of months ago, is now involved in a legal tussle stemming from another awards show.

The company is being sued by a stagehand claiming late payment for working on the 36th annual "American Music Awards," reports Deadline.com.

The production company was involved in a legal battle over the Golden Globes with NBC and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for much of the past year. The parties settled that dispute in September, as previously reported.

In the latest instance, stagehand Charles Griffin says he was hired Nov. 22, 2008, and ended work on or about the same date, but didn’t receive payment until Feb. 5, 2009, the story notes. His complaint also requests class-action status on behalf of other stagehands, and is seeking up to $400,000 in damages for all members of the class action, the story says.

  1. While I applaude Mr. Griffin’s case, and willingness to stand up for his (our) class, as it were, if we were to sue all producers and production companies that paid in 90 days, the court system could not survive the onslaught of paperwork and cases. Producers just assume we all will bend over, because we have no leverage over them.
