"Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" Creators Win Big $$$ in Suit v. Disney
Wednesday's ruling in federal court in Riverside, 60 miles east of Los Angeles, was a victory for London-based Celador International.
Celador attorneys blamed Hollywood accounting, arguing that a series of deals between several Disney companies made it appear the show was operating in the red.
The British company asked for damages up to $395 million. Disney immediately issued a statement saying it plans to appeal.
