Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gregory Alarcon last week refused to throw out a lawsuit against Seagal and A&E on behalf of a company called Idea Factory, who claim that they pitched Seagal with an idea very similar to Lawman back in 2007, before also taking the idea to A&E; the company’s multi-million dollar lawsuit alleges that it had a deal to make the show, but that the star and channel went ahead without it. Alarcon’s ruling isn’t in agreement with Idea Factory, but in response to an attempt by A&E and Seagal to dismiss the case; according to the Hollywood Reporter, the judge ruled that “Because there appears to be facts showing that the material terms of the agreement were decided, there’s a triable issue of fact as to whether an oral agreement existed.”
The trial should begin next year.
