Judge Dismisses Orphans’ Lawsuit Against ABC over “Extreme Makeover” Home
The Sacramento Bee reports:
A judge has dismissed a case against ABC Television filed by five orphaned siblings who claim the network broke a contract to provide them a permanent home after their appearance on “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”
In granting a motion for summary judgment last week, Judge Paul Gutman ruled the siblings had failed to prove their case against ABC, the production companies and the builder.
Although ABC built a new home for these orphans, the title in the home was vested in the orphans’ adopted family. When the orphans moved out in a disagreement with the family, the orphans looked to ABC for legal relief.
