The Fate of Hollywood Internships At The Mercy of Second Circuit Court of Appeals

The Second Circuit Court of Appeals granted Fox Searchlight and Fox Entertainment Group their request to appeal aspects of the ‘Black Swan’ intern case ruling from early in the summer. The defendants are appealing both the class certification of former interns and also the summary judgment in the former interns’ favor. The original ruling declared the interns were actually treated as employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York Labor Law. The decision that will likely determine the fate of internships in the entertainment and media sector, is expected in 2014. 

What are your thoughts on the possible outcome of the appeal?
