Dick Clark pushes back against HFPA

Company responds to judge's ruling on Golden globes

Dick Clark Prods. pushed back against the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.’s contention that a federal judge’s ruling signified a significant victory in their legal tangle over rights to the Golden Globes.

On Monday, U.S. District Judge Valerie Baker Fairbank refused to dismiss the HFPA’s suit against DCP and its owner, Red Zone Capital, charging that they negotiated a long term rights deal with NBC without their consent.

In a statement, DCP said that “it is usual for a judge to allow a case to proceed to the evidence phase,” and that Fairbank’s ruling “does not speak to the merits of the lawsuit. We remain confident that, when the Court considers the evidence from both sides, our view of the contract will prevail and our right to produce the Golden Globes will be affirmed.”

Fairbank did dismiss one HFPA claim, that DCP breached its fiduciary duty.
