#WarnerBros Get Whacked For $18M By ‘#Goodfellas’ #Producer In #Royalties #Lawsuit

““Warner’s conduct in carry out this deceitful scheme to hide and pocket the lion’s share of home video receipts (more than $140 million in the case of Goodfellas) and to exclude that vast sum from the computation of plaintiff’s contingent compensation, was, among other things, a willful violation of the implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing,” says the complaint filed on Monday (read it here). “But it was more than that. Warner’s falsely representing in its written reports to plaintiffs figures for home video receipts that were, in fact, only one-fifth of the true and actual video receipts, and its issuing such false and misleading reports while failing to disclose and concealing that every one of the many home video figures in its reports was only 20% of the true figure were acts of intentional fraud.” via DEADLINE.. http://deadline.com/2015/09/goodfellas-lawsuit-warner-bros-martin-scorsese-irwin-winkler-bert-fields-1201544543/
