Hayden Christensen - Hayden Christensen Vows To Appeal Tv Lawsuit Dismissal

Hayden Christensen has vowed to launch an appeal after a judge dismissed his lawsuit against the TV bosses he accused of stealing his idea for a comedy series.
The Canadian actor and his brother, Tove, filed suit against executives at the Usa Network over allegations one of the channel's shows is based on an idea the brothers pitched to them back in 2005.
They claim their proposal for a show called Housecall, about a "concierge" doctor who makes home visits to rich and famous clients, was turned into Royal Pains, starring Mark Feuerstein.
The case went to court in New York on Tuesday (10May11) and Manhattan federal Judge Colleen MCMahon dismissed the lawsuit, ruling the claims concerned "materials that are not copyrightable, such as ideas".
Their lawyer, David Marek, has now confirmed the brothers will appeal the decision, telling the New York Post, "We are disappointed with the ruling and hope to have it reversed on appeal."
