    AMC Loses Bid to Toss Frank Darabonts Second Walking Dead Lawsuit

    A New York judge on Monday denied AMCs motion to throw out one of two profit-participation lawsuits filed by The Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont, and set a trial on the long-running case for November.


    Darabont who was fired after the first season of the show, back in July 2011 has filed two lawsuits accusing AMC of shorting him out of hundreds of millions of dollars in profits. The first suit, filed in 2013, argues that AMC owes him $280 million. Darabont and his co-plaintiff, CAA, filed a second lawsuit in 2018, alleging that further evidence had shown that AMC owed him at least $10 million more.


    AMC filed a motion for summary judgment on the second suit in December, arguing that the cable network had calculated Darabonts profits correctly and his suit should be thrown out.


    But in a ruling on Monday, Justice Joel M. Cohen denied the motion, ruling that the issues should be determined by a jury. The dispute centers on the definition of modified adjusted gross receipts. Darabonts attorneys have alleged that AMC failed to negotiate the definition in good faith, and instead unilaterally presented their definition to Darabont as the last word on the matter.


    AMC has argued that its definition was unambiguous and in keeping with industry norms, and that therefore the suit should be dismissed. Cohen did not buy that argument.

    I thought this lawsuit ended years ago, I’m surprised they haven’t just given him money and ended it
