SAG discrimination lawsuit settled

Case was to be considered by the Supreme Court

A race discrimination lawsuit filed against SAG by its former director of affirmative action has been settled just days before the U.S. Supreme Court was to decide whether to review the lower federal courts’ decision in the case.

Patricia Heisser Metoyer sued SAG claiming she was fired in retaliation for complaints she made about alleged discrimination by the guild. SAG claimed she was let go for allegedly giving more than $30,000 in union funds to friends, business partners and her husband’s production company.
