Fox Suffers A Likely Loss To Netflix In On-Going Executive Poaching Lawsuit

If the brevity of this tentative becomes final, this would go down as a loss for Fox’s anti-SLAPP motion against the streaming service’s October 19 cross-complaint. That complaint is the subject of a still-on-the-books hearing scheduled for tomorrow in Santa Monica and is the latest in back and forth filings which began in September last year when the Fox units took Netflix to court over the latter’s hiring of execs Tara Flynn and Marco Waltenberg. Fox claimed Netflix “illegally” poached employees under contract. – Dominic Patten, Deadline Hollywood http://ift.tt/2k5ftRS
