Click to Enlarge • Yesterday’s move to the ceiling at $18.37, plotted in yellow, is suspicious in that Kinder Morgan shares only has to kiss that level to draw out the profit-takers.

    Viacom sues Netflix for poaching exec: report

    Viacom has filed suit against Netflix Inc. , accusing the streaming company of poaching a TV production executive, according to a report in Variety. Netflix announced last week it had hired Viacom veteran Momita SenGupta as vice president of physical production for its original series, but Viacom alleges in the suit that Netflix induced her to break her contract, which ends in 2020. "Netflix has signaled that it has no intention of complying with the law, and that its illegal attempts to induce Viacom employees to break their contracts without consequence will not be limited to SenGupta," Viacom attorney Anthony J. Oncidi alleged. This isn't a first for Netflix; in 2016, 20th Century Fox also sued Netflix for hiring two of its employees before their contracts ended. Netflix has argued that Fox's contracts are unenforceable under California law, and the case will go to trial next year.
