Judge Tells Filmmaker to Amend Complaint or Face Dismissal

The judge in charge of Bob Yari's lawsuit against the Producers Guild of America and the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences has told him to amend his complaint to state a cause of action. Otherwise, Judge Edward Ferns will find in favor of the defendants and dismiss the suit. Yari has been fighting over producer credits and other issues with former partners Cathy Schulman and Tom Nunan over various films, as well as with PGA and AMPAS over credits for the film Crash, which won the Best Picture Oscar this year, since January. Yari's attorney says she will amend the complaint in the time allowed and go forward with the action. Read more here in a Hollywood Reporter story. (Registration may be required).
