Television show producers prevail
Garrison, et al. v. Jones T.V., et al., Washington Co., Ark., No. CV-11-2388-4
Henry Law Firm defended Hollywood producers in a lawsuit targeting the television show Last Shot with Judge Gunn. As part of our defense to these claims, we filed a summary judgment motion to dismiss the case on many theories including First Amendment and intellectual property grounds. After a few depositions of the plaintiffs, counsel for the plaintiffs nonsuited their case without any settlement or recovery.
Our clients were the producer of a progressive television show that highlighted the benefits of drug courts as a creative way for people to avoid prison and to get their lives back on track. In this case, several drug court participants tried to cash in on the show's popularity to no avail.
