A probate court has approved a $1.25 million settlement in a law suit filed against Tony Scott’s estate by Creative Artists Agency (CAA). Tony Scott is well known for directing movie “Top Gun.” According to the order signed by Las Angeles Superior Court Judge David Cunningham the funds for the settlement will come out of Tony Scott’s estate. The director passed away in 2012 when he plunged to his death off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro. The complaint alleges that Scott still owed the CAA commission for a number of different film projects. There are 11 movies that are covered in the settlement agreement.
