Sources have told me that an East Coast law firm has hired a Century City law firm to pursue a possible lawsuit on behalf of one child, and maybe more, who were injured during the reality show Kid Nation. I’m told that CBS has been handling this dispute super-confidentially with in-house counsel and have twice tried to mediate it outside of the courts. But insiders tell me the sides are very far apart on money: CBS wants to pay $50K and the potential plaintiff is asking high 7 figures. Stay tuned.
