As of July 1, three major agencies (WME, UTA and CAA) are suing the Writers Guild. They say the Guild is violating antitrust laws by organizing an unlawful group boycott. WGA is also accusing the agencies of violating antitrust law, including collusion and price-fixing. We get the latest on the dispute, and hear from two writers on how they're finding work.
