Title's labor on behalf of Universal Studios has been almost literally herculean. Back in September 2003, Kevin Sorbo, the muscular star of TV's "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys," sued the studio, alleging it cheated him out of 8% of the adjusted gross from the show. Title won a dismissal on demurrer of Sorbo's fraud claims in December 2006, and a year later, a Los Angeles judge summarily dismissed the remaining 24 breach-of-contract claims. The case is now on appeal. She has also handled litigation for Reveille, including three separate copyright infringement cases over "The Biggest Loser." DreamWorks has also hired Title to defend it in a copyright suit over the "Las Vegas" TV series, and she was retained to defend a copyright case over Sci Fi Channel's "Ghost Hunters." "Gail is extremely bright and intuitive, has deep knowledge of the entertainment industry and truly is a pleasure to work with," says Universal senior vp litigation David Burg.
