Ellison Lawsuit

Harlan Ellison has filed a lawsuit against Paramount Studios and the Writers Guild of America over the merchandising, publishing, or any other exploitations of his script to the classic Star Trek episode “The City on the Edge of Forever.” The lawsuit notes Paramount’s licensing of the Crucible series and includes the WGA with the claim that they failed to act on numerous requests. Ellison’s suit is based on the collective bargaining agreement entered into between the WGA and Paramount.
