A lawsuit has been filed against Fox Searchlight Pictures, claiming the company violated federal laws by failing to pay dozens of interns who worked on the move “The Black Swan.” According to the lawsuit, the interns were forced to complete “menial tasks” that should have been done by paid employees, and did not receive “the type of educational experience that labor rules require in order to exempt employers from paying interns.” The lawsuit is seeking class-action status.
