A year before Steven Seagal’s A&E series Lawman was suspended over sex allegations against its star, the realty show was plagued by more legal troubles in the form of a lawsuit over the origin of the idea. In 2009, Genuine Entertainment and related companies The Idea Factory and Rebel Entertainment Partners filed a multi-million-dollar lawsuit against A&E, Seagal, the agent who sold the show, ICM’s Nick Reed, and Steamroller Prods., claiming that they had had a pre-existing agreement with Seagal for a similar series, which had been pitched to A&E. In December, A&E and Seagal’s request for dismissal was denied. Today, the two sides announced that they “have amicably resolved their dispute” and “have resumed normal business relations.”
