Dick Clark Productions Files Motion to Dismiss the Golden Globes Lawsuit

hollywoodnews.com: Dick clark productions, inc. (dcp) today filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit against it by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

“We have said from the onset that the case has no merit,” said a dcp spokesperson. “We believe our rights under the contract are clear and are willing to live within its four corners. The HFPA apparently is not.”

The spokesperson continued, “When dcp first got involved with the Golden Globes, the program had no television deal whatsoever. Working with the HFPA, dcp nurtured and re-established the brand, and ultimately found a new home on NBC. The Golden Globes now has a strong following and has been successfully re-positioned as one of the leading award shows in the entertainment industry. Now, with that success in hand, the HFPA is trying to unilaterally change the basis on which dcp and the HFPA have done business for almost three decades.”

Under a motion to dismiss, the court does not rule on whether the facts alleged by the HFPA are true. Rather, the court will assume the facts as alleged and determine if the assumed facts are sufficient to allow some or all of the case to proceed. If necessary, the opportunity to challenge the assumed facts will come later.

The spokesperson continued, “While the process plays out in court, we will stay focused on producing the must-see quality program for which the Golden Globes has become known. The public, the industry, our partners and the rank and file of the HFPA deserve nothing less.”
