Leno Cleared Of Violating Writers Strike Rules

U.S. talk show host JAY LENO has been cleared of breaking the Writers Guild of America's (WGA) rules during strike action last year (08).
The WGA investigated allegations that Leno violated the Hollywood union's 100-day strike action by performing nightly monologues on his former series The Tonight Show at a time when all writers in Tinseltown were supposed to put down their pens.
Complaints were made against the presenter after he returned to the U.S. small screen in January 2008, following a hiatus of two months, with critics claiming the star wrote his own witty dialogue for the shows.
However, the WGA have decided not to take any further action against Leno. He was allegedly questioned "at length" by a team of five guild members in February (09), according to Variety.
The Guild has taken action against one member, for writing a one-hour teleplay during the strike, and one non-member, who refused to comply with the action.
