Though Axed, 'Outlaw' Is Still Facing Lawsuit

Lawyer Larry Klayman said he pitched the same idea to NBC three years ago and is negotiating for compensation before seeking a legal action.

TV bosses behind ' canceled drama series "" are facing legal action from an attorney who alleges he pitched a similar idea to executives at the NBC network in 2007. Lawyer Larry Klayman claims to have joined forces with producer Cary Brokaw, former "L.A. Law" writer John Romano and Fox Television Studios executive Dave Madden to meet with NBC bosses to discuss the idea of a show based on a crusading attorney.

Klayman alleges "Outlaw", which starred Smits as a Supreme Court Justice starting up his own law firm, was based on his concept and insists he even suggested the same name. He is now considering taking legal action over the allegations, telling the New York Daily News, "I'm going to try to negotiate first, (but) I wouldn't be Larry Klayman if I didn't bring a lawsuit."

Outlaw was axed earlier this month after just weeks on-air amid declining ratings.
