Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles

Joan J. Buck v. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc.
Case No. BC540146

Overview:

A lawsuit, named above, has been filed in the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles. In general, the case involves claims that Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. has not properly accounted for home video revenues in reporting and paying contingent compensation to certain entities and persons. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. denies all liability.

Plaintiffs' Counsel has requested certain information about contracts and communications with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. and related financial information. Those records will include, but may not be limited to, your contact information, all applicable contracts, profit participation statements, correspondence, audits, and other documents. The Court has directed that notice be sent to you so that you can decide whether to authorize Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. to disclose the documents and information to the attorneys for Plaintiffs and the proposed class, which will contain identifying information about you.

The Court has already entered a "Protective Order" in this matter which limits how the documents and information may be used and disclosed. In general, only the attorneys in this action, and their support staff and employees, will be able to access the documents and information, and it will not be made available to the public.

What are your options?

YOU CAN OBJECT: If you do not want Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. to produce the information and documents described above, if available, to Plaintiffs’ Counsel you must object on or before March 4, 2016. You can do so by indicating on the pre-addressed and postage-prepaid postcard you received with the notice of this class action that you do not consent. You must mail the postcard via U.S. Postal Service so that it is postmarked no later than March 4, 2016.

Alternatively, you can communicate your objection on this website by filling out the information on the Objection Tab and submitting that information online. If you indicate your objection to the production of such information and documents, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. will not produce them unless the Court later directs Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. to do so.

Note: If you received a notice for more than one studio and wish to object, you will need to respond to each notice by either mailing in the postcard provided by that studio or objecting via the website address indicated on that studio’s notice.

YOU CAN DO NOTHING: If you do not communicate your objection to the production of such information and documents, it will be assumed that you agree to this disclosure and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. will provide the available information to Plaintiffs' Counsel.
