Family Guy Lawsuit Dismissed

Reported by Jay Cochran - 2007.05.28

A Los Angeles federal judge has thrown out a comedienne's lawsuit over the useof her cleaning woman character in hit animated TV show Family Guy.

Carol Burnett's $2 million (1 million) copyright infringement suit, filed in March (07), maintained the Fox show didn't have her permission to include her Charwoman character in an April 2006 episode. It depicted the character as a cleaning woman in a sex shop and also used a version of the theme music to her old TV series without permission, her lawsuit claimed.

However, U.S. District Judge Dean Pregerson revealed on Friday (25May07) he planned to throw out the suit against 20th Century Fox. He will issue a final ruling later.
