Lisa Kudrow loses $1.6million law suit to former manager over Friends royalties
The actress, who played Phoebe in the TV sitcom, plans to appeal the action
Lisa Kudrow has been ordered to pay $1.6million to her former manager.
A jury ruled that the Friends actress, who played Phoebe in now defunct TV sitcom, owed Scott Howard the money accrued during her time on the show, as well as other work he claims he negotiated at a rate of 5 % of her earnings before she terminated his contract in 2007.
Kudrow disputed the claim, saying that her manager had received more than $11million before they ended their professional relationship.
The actress’ lawyer, Gerald Sauer, has since confirmed to Deadline that Kudrow plans to appeal the ruling.
"The jury's verdict is merely one step in the legal process. This case ultimately will be resolved at the appellate level.
"Ms Kudrow has faith in the judicial system, and she believes that the eventual outcome of this contractual dispute will be in her favour."
Kudrow, who recently appeared in Scandal, is currently working on a new TV series, Web Therapy, which was renewed for a fourth season by Showtime in January.
