Turns out a jury won’t be deciding whether Warner Bros Television owes the producers of Smallville $100 million in damages after all. A Wbtv spokesman today confirmed to Deadline that the suit filed by Tollin/Robbins Productions has “been resolved.” No details of the settlement today were made public. However, Tollin/Robbins did file court paperwork Wednesday to dismiss its own claims in the case. That doesn’t mean the suit is completely over. Smallville co/creators/writers Miles Millar and Alfred Gough are still pursuing their suit against Wbtv with a trial date of June 10, 2013. In the initial suit, first filed in March 2010, Tollin/Robbins Productions along with Millar and Gough claimed Wbtv signed low-balling licensing deals with the WB and later the CW that were nowhere near the requisite arms-length. They also alleged that the deals were not conducted with the good faith that they should have been. »
