Conservative writer and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza prevailed in an arbitration with co-producer Doug Sain over ‘Obama’s America’. The documentary which earned $33.5M at the box office is the second-most popular political documentary of all time. Sain, who claimed that his ownership interest should be increased from 25% to 50%, also contended he should be paid $200K in finder’s fees for bringing in investors as well as an additional $1.4M for expenses, profits and other matters. The arbitrator ultimately concluded that Sain “failed to carry his burden of proof on any of his claims”.
