CBS drops Glass House lawsuit but not legal action against former Big Brother producers

CBS has given up, finally, its absurd claims that Big Brother was ripped off by The Glass House, but will continue its legal proceedings against the crew members who used to work on the CBS series, including executive producer Kenny Rosen.

In a really bullshit statement that fails to acknowledge the reality of their case, such as their impossibly dumb claims and the fact that the judge didn’t think CBS would win, CBS attributes their decision to drop the case on Glass House‘s low ratings:

“The viewers have spoken and delivered the ultimate form of justice against The Glass House. As a result, we filed in federal court this morning a voluntary dismissal without prejudice of our claims against ABC. The contract and trade secrets claims against former Big Brother producers for violating their confidentiality agreements will continue separately in arbitration. We reserve the right to re-file this claim against ABC/The Glass House, or any other entity, that goes to such shocking lengths to duplicate our copyright material.”

Yes, how shocking, CBS, home of The Talk, which is not at all like any ABC show such as The View.
