Roddenberry v. Roddenberry (1996) 44 Cal.App.4th 634

The Court of Appeal reversed a multi-million-dollar judgment against GMSR’s client, holding that producer Gene Roddenberry’s first wife had no right to proceeds from the Star Trek television shows, movies and merchandise produced long after the first marriage ended. The Court agreed with GMSR’s argument that the evidence supporting the underlying judgment was not substantial,” noting: “Not every bald assertion rises to the dignity of substantial evidence. Transparent prevarication is not an acceptable basis for decision.””
