Despite James Murdoch allegedly confiding that Bones was, during its long run, Fox's biggest earner, Fox has been found guilty of fraud, lying and cheating the cast and creators of the show, and are going to have to pay $179 million for their, and I'm quoting the arbitrator here, "reprehensible" behavior. I know, who would have believed Fox would ever be capable of such a thing? I mean those lovely skeletons on Fox and Friends seem like lovely people to me, as does Laura Schlessinger - but apparently there are some bad hombres over there, who somehow missed the memo that you don't ever want to tangle with David Boreanaz in a legal environment - did these executives somehow miss Angel season 5?
In any case, and in all seriousness, I applaud the cast and creators of Bones for fighting the good fight, and congratulate them for their huge victory. For the complete story, here's an excellent summary from the Hollywood Reporter: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/fox-rocked-by-179-million-bones-ruling-lying-cheating-reprehensible-studio-fraud-1190346
