Lucasfilm, Pixar settle suit

A court document states Lucasfilm and Pixar have settled a lawsuit that claims they and other giant companies conspired to keep wages down by agreeing not to poach each other's workers.

In a Sunday filing, U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh said lawyers representing the workers had notified her about the settlement with Lucasfilm and Pixar. Terms of the settlement weren't disclosed.

The lawsuit continues against Apple, Google, Intel, Intuit and Adobe Systems.

It contends they schemed to cheat employees by artificially suppressing the demand for their services. A status report on efforts to settle the case is supposed to be filed by Friday.
