IATSE settles ‘Dog’ dispute

Case settlement confidential

Following two weeks of jury trial, attorneys have resolved a dispute over IATSE’s allegedly illegal disruption in 1999 of the indie film “Flat Dog.”

Attorneys said terms of the settlement were confidential. The dispute was resolved just before the case went to the Los Angeles Superior Court jury for deliberation on Monday.

Producers of the low-budget telepic asserted that threats, vandalism and sabotage by the Intl.

The suit, filed in May 2000, alleged the activities resulted in increased costs and delays in the release.
