Tupac's Estate Seeks Millions in Damages for Interference: TRIAL DATE SET FOR APRIL 2010

AMARU ENTERTAINMENT SCORES MAJOR VICTORY AGAINST PRODUCTIONS

’s Estate Millions in Damages for Interference

Lawyers for Amaru Entertainment scored a major victory against Morgan Creek Productions in the Superior for the State of California on Tuesday, September 1, when Judge Richard E. Rico ruled in their favor and upheld Amaru Entertainment’s cross-complaint for tortious intentional interference. A trial has now been for Tuesday, 13, 2010.

Skip Miller of Miller Barondess, LLP in , attorney for Amaru Entertainment, said “We are pleased with the court’s ruling yesterday morning. It supports our claim that Morgan Creek tortiously interfered with the making of the movie. I look forward to trying this case and have the jury decide the matter. Morgan Creek has a history of bullying people into giving them rights they did not acquire. This time, they picked on the wrong people.”

The litigation started when Morgan Creek filed against Amaru Entertainment in February this year, alleging that the company had “backed out of negotiations” and was currently “refusing to honor and perform a contract of a production for a film based on the life of Tupac Shakur.” In actuality, there was never any agreement as key deal terms had never been agreed upon between the parties. This was a scheme by Morgan Creek to bully Amaru Entertainment into doing a movie with them and interfere with Amaru Entertainment’s negotiations for the film with other studios.

In the ruling yesterday, the court held that Amaru adequately stated a claim against Morgan Creek for interference by making “intentional misrepresentations of fact to third-party studios claiming to own the film rights and threatening them to back off on further negotiations with Amaru Entertainment.”
