Deadline Hollywood: ‘Bones’ Stars & EPs Vow to Appeal Cleaving of $179M Profit Award by Judge

May 03, 2019

In a stunning win for Fox, a California judge on Thursday tossed most of a $179 million judgment that Bones stars Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz and executive producers Barry Josephson and Kathy Reichs were awarded by an arbitrator earlier this year. Judge Richard Rico removed $128 million in punitive damages granted by former judge Peter Lichtman in late February. “We are pleased with the Court’s decision to strike punitive damages from the award and vindicating our position,” said Fox. O’Melveny partner Dan Petrocelli represented Fox in its appeal.
