The LOS ANGELES TIMES is reporting that the settlement talks in the case filed by former VIACOM and CBS CORP. Chairman SUMNER REDSTONE's former girlfriend MANUELA HERZER over her removal as his health care representative "have hit a roadblock," setting up the case to go to trial.
“We have hit a snag,” said HERZER's attorney PIERCE O'DONNELL, who indicated in a statement that the issue was not monetary. “We will see what happens.” The TIMES says that the settlement would have been in the $25-30 million range.
A trial in the case could start on MAY 6th.
