Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, Deadline and Others Cover Early Sullivan Client’s Suit Over Roberto Clemente Biopic Rights

Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, TheWrap, Deadline, and other publications recently covered a lawsuit filed on behalf of Early Sullivan client Inside the Park against baseball star Roberto Clemente’s sons, Luis R. Clemente and Roberto Clemente Jr., over their efforts to “fraudulently sell and resell” the rights to Clemente’s life story “for their own, substantial financial gain.” Clemente’s sons allegedly sold rights to a biopic of their father to Inside The Park despite having already optioned the film with another production company. Inside The Park seeks $5 million in damages for claims that include breach of contract, fraud, specific performance and declaratory relief, among others, as well as a court order clarifying the exclusive ownership of rights to the story.
