Lawsuit against Univision


As Univision's new owners work to sell of its record division, one Latino label has sued it for 10 million bucks. According to the Los Angeles Times, Platino Records charges that Univision Music stopped promotion of Platino's releases, which Univision Music distributed, causing sales to plunge. Platino's owner had testified in another lawsuit brought by a former Univision Music executive who claims he was fired after he refused to offer radio station programmers in LA payola to play his company's records.
