FEATURES Judge Dismisses Class-Action Wage Suit Against Studios
A federal class-action lawsuit alleging top animation studios conspired to suppress wages has been dismissed.
In a ruling issued April 3, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh cited the statute of limitations in dismissing the complaint.
The suit was filed against DreamWorks Animation, The Walt Disney Co., Sony Imageworks, ImageMovers, Blue Sky Studios, Lucasfilm and Pixar.
The ruling stated that the plaintiffs failed to show any actions taken by the studios after Sept. 8, 2010, which is the cutoff for the statute of limitations.
The plaintiffs are free to amend their complaint and were given 30 days to do so. It was unknown at press time if the complaint had been amended.
