Unpaid internships in jeopardy after court ruling

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The days of unpaid internships could be numbered if a federal court decision holds up.

The judge ruled this week that Fox Searchlight Pictures violated minimum wage and overtime laws by not paying interns who worked on production of the 2010 movie "Black Swan."
