A federal judge has ruled that director Barry Sonnenfeld does have to pay his former agency UTA up to $325,000 in fees for Men In Black 3. The decision by U.S. District Court Judge S. James Otero denied Sonnenfeld’s motion to vacate an arbitration panel’s award that was handed down in April. The arbitration also said that UTA will get even more if additional MIB sequels are made. In an eight-page decision (read it here) Otera said “Having reviewed all the relevant briefing before the Court, the Court finds no grounds upon which to vacate or otherwise amend the award. Accordingly, the Court is obligated to confirm the Award.” Otera denied UTA’s request for attorney fees. Sony’s Men In Black 3 opened May 25, 2012 and has grossed roughly $178 million domestically and an additional $443.4 million overseas.
