Appeals Court Affirms Dismissal of Suit against Paramount

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit upheld the dismissal of a lawsuit that accused Viacom Inc. unit Paramount Pictures of financing fraud. Appellants, who accused the company of federal securities fraud, common law fraud and unjust enrichment, claimed that the district court erred in finding that Paramount's business strategy with respect to film financing and risk mitigation did not change following their investment in Melrose Investors LLC, according to a Dec. 14 court filing. Melrose is a special purpose vehicle that invested its funds in a slate of movies produced and distributed by Paramount over a two-year period. The appeals court found that the district court's finding that Paramount did not change its business strategy with respect to territorial sales following the Melrose transaction is not erroneous. Stating that the appellants' claims lack merit, the court further stated that the appellants failed to establish the factual premise of their claims, and the district court correctly dismissed the complaint.
