According to several sources, we discovered the news that comedian Terry Hodges has settled the pending lawsuit against ChrisTucker.
If you recall Hodges sued Tucker and Netflix back in July alleging he had not been paid since 2011 for editing, writing and producing work he performed, beginning in 2008, on Chris Tucker Live.
Word was that Hodges was seeking $66,000 and a co-producer credit on the show, but Tucker hit back with his own legal papers, claiming he only consulted with Hodges for the special and never hired him to edit, write or produce it, while maintaining he had been paid in full for his contributions. Tucker even stated that he loaned Hodges a total of $37,000, which was never paid back.
Last month (Jan16), the parties attended a mediation hearing and came to a confidential settlement.
Sources stated to us that Hodges and Tucker were able to come to an agreement and the lawsuits will be subsequently dismissed.
