Television personality Nancy Grace has been named in a breach of contract lawsuit filed by a former colleague.
The lawsuit was filed by Patricia Caruso last month in the Supreme Court of New York. According to the complaint, Caruso and Grace started developing a television series in early 2008. Caruso claims that Grace committed to cooperate in the development of the series, called “Grace’s Cases,” and promised not to proceed unless Caruso was retained and credited as an executive producer.
The lawsuit claims CBS mad Grace an offer to shoot a pilot for the show in May 2009, after months of network pitching under Caruso’s direction. According to the lawsuit, CBS sold the series, now called “Swift Justice With Nancy Grace,” in October 2009. In the Spring of 2010, however, the lawsuit alleges Grace signed on to host the series without Caruso as executive producer.
Caruso is seeking $15 million in damages, in addition to court costs.
