Date Issue Title
19th May 2004 Other Issue Sony sued by film maker

A production company sued Sony Pictures and its Columbia Pictures division, alleging the studios shortchanged the firm on receipts from the 1970s film "The Lords of Flatbush," court documents state.

The suit filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court by Ebbets Field Film Co. claims breach of contract and violation of the business and professional code.

The suit said Ebbets sold the distribution rights to the movie in 1974 to Sony and Columbia in exchange for 50 percent of the gross receipts.

Two years ago, Sony and Columbia sent a letter claiming they owed Ebbets a total of $20,880 in connection with deal, the suit said.

However, an audit by the production company determined it was owed an additional $387,279, the suit states.

Ebbets is seeking the money it claims it is owed, as well as interest and unspecified damages.
