BSF Represents The Weinstein Company in "Project Runway" Litigation
The New York Times, April 7, 2008
The New York Times and other news outlets reported that NBC Universal and Bravo Media have filed suit against The Weinstein Company ("TWC"), BSF's longtime client. The suit alleges that TWC's agreement to move Project Runway, a reality based show hosted by supermodel Heidi Klum, from Bravo to the Lifetime network violated NBC Universal and Bravo's alleged right of first refusal. The Times quotes BSF Chairman David Boies as saying that "'[w]e believe that this lawsuit is without merit. While good for the market for lawyers, it is always unfortunate when parties try to win in court what they have lost in the marketplace.'"
