Dove Audio sues Stern in arbitration-award flap

Dove Audio Inc. and producers Michael Viner and Jerry Leider have sued producer/director Steven Stern and six of his relatives for allegedly transferring Stern’s assets so that he could avoid paying a $ 4.585 million arbitration award.

In a complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Dove claimed Stern divorced his wife, Sharma, and entered into a property settlement less than two weeks after the arbitration award — which arose out of a dispute over production of a film called “Change of Heart” or “Morning Glory” so that Stern could avoid paying the plaintiffs.

The settlement agreement left Stern with “virtually nothing of a non-exempt character,” the suit said, and was made without appraising the assets including $ 2 million in retirement accounts.

Stern allegedly made a series of gifts and transactions to avoid paying the plaintiffs.

Suit claims that, in all, Stern made transfer of assets worth $ 3.4 million and got $ 150,000 back.

Dove, Viner and Leider want their arbitration award plus $ 10 million in punitive damages.
