The Lovell Firm, representing clients in lawsuit against Oprah Winfrey, recently featured on The Wrap

Prominent attorney Tre Lovell is representing writing duo in their multi-million dollar lawsuit against Oprah Winfrey and others for claims of having stolen their ideas for the television show "Greenleaf." The lawsuit calls the actions of the defendants blatant and arrogant: "[T]hey didn't even seek to hide the theft; they used the same character names and copied verbatim unique and novel storylines, themes, subplots and the overall tone of the show. They even named their antagonist after Plaintiff Pastor Barrie (Pastor Basie in 'Greenleaf')." The lawsuit similarly notes that "creative theft, in Hollywood, has become a cottage industry."
