A Los Angeles Superior Court jury on Monday awarded $7.3 million to a producer who sued MCA Inc. alleging that a script he wrote while working at the company in the early 1980s was used as the basis for the current CBS show "Northern Exposure," his lawyer said. Sandy Veith, whose credits include writing for such shows as "The Jeffersons" and "Good Times," had alleged that "Northern Exposure" stemmed from an idea he developed for a show called "Coletta" when he worked at MCA from 1981 to 1986.
