Duo bury ‘Dead’ dispute

Kirkman, Moore reach settlement in bitter legal dispute

A settlement has been reached in the bitter legal dispute between “The Walking Dead” comicbook writer Robert Kirkman and former collaborator and artist Tony Moore.

They issued a joint statement announcing that “they have reached an amicable agreement in their respective lawsuits and all parties have settled the entire matter to everyone’s mutual satisfaction. Neither side will be discussing details but will instead happily and productively spend their time focused on their own work and move on in their lives.”

Moore had filed suit against Kirkman in Los Angeles Superior Court in February, seeking royalties and accounting from “Dead’ and other works, claiming that he was fraudulently induced to sign over his copyright interests to Kirkman’s limited lia-bility company. Kirkman filed a counterclaim, charging that Moore violated a confidentiality provision of their agreement and that he actually was overpaid for his work.

In August, Moore filed a suit in federal court, seeking a judicial determination that he is co-author of “Walking Dead” and other works. The settlement statement did not address that issue.

Kirkman was represented by Allen B. Grodsky of Grodsky & Olecki, and Moore by Devin McRae of Early Sullivan.
