In Time Lawsuit Settlement

Harlan Ellison’s lawsuit against New Regency and director Andrew Niccol over plagiarism for their film In Time has been settled. Ellison claimed that In Time was based on his 1965 story “Repent, Harlequin! Said The Ticktockman.” Ellison’s original lawsuit asked that all copies of the film be destroyed, its release stopped, and he be paid compensatory damages. The settlement calls for the film’s release to go ahead with an on-screen credit for Ellison.
