The American Lawyer Litigation Daily: US$179M Award Against Fox: Can O’Melveny’s Petrocelli Stop Runaway Arbitrator?

February 28, 2019

Fox has tapped partner and “star litigator” Dan Petrocelli in an attempt to reverse a US$123 million punitive damages award over a conflict surrounding the TV show, “Bones.”

Petrocelli filed a motion with the Los Angeles Superior Court, asking for the punitive damages to be reviewed and overturned. According to him, the relevant contracts bar punitive remedies for “any arbitral claims asserted in connection with alleged breaches.”
