Judge tentatively upholds $319 million 'Millionaire' verdict
Disney’s bid to overturn a $319 million verdict in its six-year case against a producer for Who Wants to Be a Millionaire was dealt a blow when a federal judge issued a tentative ruling denying their appeal, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Celador Intl. had been awarded a huge financial judgment this summer after they convinced a jury that Disney hid millions of dollars in revenue from their joint profit-sharing agreement for the popular game show. A final judgment is expected later this week.
