Prism suing ABC over ‘Amy’

Prism Entertainment Corp. has sued Capital Cities ABC Video Enterprises Inc. for allegedly breaching an exclusive two-year homevideo distribution agreement by giving rights to “The Amy Fisher Story” to at least two of Prism’s competitors.

Prism, in a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, says ABC has diverted the film to competitors including Warner Brothers Home Video and Cineglobe Video, despite a February 1992 video output agreement granting ABC’s videos to Prism for the period between June 1, 1992, and May 31, 1994.

The deal called for Prism to expend substantial money, time and effort creating an exclusive label for the ABC films, the suit said.

The suit seeks at least $ 500,000 in compensatory damages and unspecified punitive damages.
