Arsenio Hall is facing a $2 million dollar lawsuit filed by Paul Raff who claims that Hall, his executive producer John Ferriter and CBS Studios broke promises to give him a key job on the show. Raff, who wrote for Jimmy Kimmel Live! for five years, says that he and the parties in question met and verbally agreed that he would work on Hall’s website which would lead to a position as the head writer on the show but no offer ever came. He is suing for “fraudlent inducement” and “negligent misrepresentation.” [Deadline]
