There’s nothing paranormal about this case, but a pair of producers are nonetheless continuing their hunt for compensation, alleging NBCUniversal stole their idea for the network’s long-running Ghost Hunters franchise.
Parapsychologist Larry Montz and publicist Daena Smoller, who first sued the network five years ago, claim in the new suit, obtained by EW, that the network produced Ghost Hunters based off pitches made to those named in the suit between 1996 and 2001. Citing breach of implied contract and breach of confidence, the pair is seeking damages and compensation.
Only 2 months ago, the network was denied an appeal by the U.S. Supreme Court in the first suit, which has gone through several years of litigation. Montz and Smoller initially lost on the district level, but their complaint was later re-instated after an appeal, a move NBCUniversal disputed to the high court.
NBCUniversal did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.
