LOS ANGELES (AP) — Attorneys for the Screen Actors Guild and the actor who played Eddie Haskell on “Leave It to Beaver” are asking a judge to approve a multimillion-dollar settlement over foreign royalties.

The settlement in a 3-year-old class action lawsuit filed in Los Angeles should result in thousands of actors receiving payments for royalties generated in Europe since the 1980s. The agreement is expected to gain preliminary approval during a hearing Sept. 20.

Settlement documents filed Monday require an audit of the royalties program and SAG to publish detailed results to its members. The settlement states the union is not admitting any wrongdoing.

Ken Osmond, who played Haskell in the 1950s and 1960s television show, filed the suit on behalf of fellow actors in 2007.
