Spike Lee Sued For Failing To Pay Union Health Contributions

Filmmaker Spike Lee and his companies are being sued by the directors of three union benefit plans for not making sufficient health and pension contributions.

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday against Lee, Forty Acres and a Mule Filmworks and Black Butterfly Productions. It claims an audit found nearly $45,000 in unpaid contributions between September 2007 and March 2010.

The suit says Lee controlled Black Butterfly, a signatory to collective bargaining agreements, and treated its assets as his own while failing to pay its debts.

The plaintiffs manage plans for the American Federal of Musicians, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Studio Transportation Drivers. They’re seeking all unpaid damages, interest, audit costs and legal fees.
