Science Guy Bill Nye Files Lawsuit Against Disney Over Royalty Payments

The lawsuit's assertions include fraudulent concealment (that Disney and its subsidiaries knew of profits from the show that they kept from Nye), breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty. Nye claims that Buena Vista stopped making royalty payments in 2008 because of the dispute. It was nominated for 23 Emmy Awards and won 19.

If you're a child of the 90s like me, you grew up with Bill Nye "The Science Guy". It has now been two decades since the show ended and the continued popularity speaks to the success of the show.

Bill Nye, the ripped off guy. While his run ended in 1999, Nye is suing Disney saying that he's still owed a lot of money from those days. "Nevertheless", the suit continues, "[Buena Vista] and [Disney] steadfastly refused to negotiate, instead taunting Mr. Nye to audit [Buena Vista's] accounting, knowing that [Buena Vista] and [Disney] would make such an audit unduly burdensome, costly, and time consuming". In a report by CNN, it was reported that Nye is allegedly owed a gross amount of $9 million for his work on the show.

Television personality and scientist Bill Nye the Science Guy is suing Disney and several of its subsidiaries claiming the conglomerate underpaid him by at least $9 million for his popular television series.

Curfew to be Imposed On Internet Services in Chandigarh, Punjab & Haryana
Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan, has denied the charges of raping two of his female followers in the Dera Sacha Sauda sect. The godman is provided Z-plus security, reserved for the top VVIPs, and travels with a fleet of bullet-proof cars.

However, it has recently become suspected that he has not been paid this amount. "The disturbing size of the supposed 'accounting error, ' coupled with the seeming indifference of both [Buena Vista] and [Walt Disney Company], left Nye suspicious of the veracity of the accounting statements he had been receiving from BVT over the years", the suit says. The host says that he tried to get an explanation but was thrown around for years, resulting in him hiring an external auditor.

Although Disney was behind Nye's incredibly successful show, it appears that the House of Mouse may have been less than honest with Nye - and he's coming to collect.
