Judge Rejects Challenge to 460K+ Verdict Obtained by Doniger / Burroughs in Film Copyright Case

Venice, CA – the long-standing and hotly-contested battle over the rights to the Toolbox Murders film franchise has taken another step toward completion. Earlier this year, Doniger / Burroughs obtained at trial a verdict of more than $460,000.00 in connection with copyright claims brought in connection with the films. Earlier this week, the Honorable Philip S. Gutierrez rejected the infringers’ motion for a new trial, paving the way for the verdict to be enforced.

Doniger / Burroughs attorneys Stephen M. Doniger and David R. Shein represented the plaintiffs in this matter. For further information, call or email Grace Garcia at (310) 590-1820 and ggarcia@donigerlawfirm.com
