Harlan Ellison filed suit in federal court in Los Angeles on Friday
against CBS Paramount and the Writers Guild of America over his script
for “The City on the Edge of Forever,” an episode of the original Star Trek series that first aired in April of 1967.
According to the suit, Ellison claims that he has no payment or
accounting from Paramount for the exploitation of his original
teleplay; and also claims that the WGA has failed to act on his behalf
on the issue, and has breached its duty of fair representation.
