FEA­TURES Judge Dis­misses Class-Ac­tion Wage Suit Against Stu­dios

Animation Magazine - - Frame- By- Frame -

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.
