Milestone 2.0 Hung Up on the Widow's Lawsuit

Charlotte McDuffie, the widow of the late comic creator Dwayne McDuffie, has filed a lawsuit against the revived Milestone Media for not including his estate in the new venture. According to Variety at the time of his death in 2011 McDuffie owned 50% of Milestone Media and Derek Dingle owned the other half. The suit claims that instead of buying out his shares of the company, Dingle, Reginald Hudlin and Denys Cowan created Milestone Media Company LLC. The new company was named Milestone 2.0 and was going to use all the characters from the original venture. The idea for a relaunch came up at McDuffie’s wake. Charlotte McDuffie is claiming that she has been getting no answers about Milestone 2.0 which is planning new titles with DC and other publishers without paying her and her family or with their consent. There was a deal ready to settle this issue back in April but that deal isn’t going to happen since she filed the lawsuit. Milestone’s partners have denied the suit’s allegations. The DC revival was announced two years ago but nothing has happened yet.
