David Cassidy is the latest celebrity to sue a studio for unpaid royalties from a hit TV series from the past.
The former Partridge Family star tells CNN that it's "ludicrous, unfair and wrong" that he's received just $5,000 for merchandise based on the hit sitcom and his Keith character. In Hollywood Hustle, a CNN documentary that aired last Sunday night, he warned, "You owe me a fortune ó you want to go to trial, big bad Sony against David Cassidy, go ahead."
Cassidy's action comes on the heels of a similar action by several cast members of another iconic '70s sitcom, Happy Days. ~JZ.
