New Judge Assigned to DreamWorks Class Action

     SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – A new federal judge will take on a high-profile class action lawsuit against DreamWorks, Disney and other animation studios, after the plaintiff asked for the case to be reassigned.
     U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh will preside over Nitsch v. DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. et al., according to an order filed Tuesday.
     Plaintiff Robert Nitsch requested in mid-September for Koh to take over the case because the judge is already overseeing a similar 2010 lawsuit.
     Nitsch accused DreamWorks and other big name studios of fixing wages and restricting career opportunities for artists.
