Woody Allen Objects!
We find this story particularly obnoxious as Mr Allen is worried about his "reputation" being endangered by Mia Farrow possibly testifying in court on his trade mark infringement suit.
He didn't seem to worry all that much about running off with Farrow's way too young adopted daughter... His reputation as far as we are concerned was shot many years ago. The old creepy child molester. Why he was allowed to get away with the "crimes" he did and then cry to the tune of 10 million bucks over use of his image. Who the heck would want his picture on anything?
NEW YORK (Reuters) – Lawyers for film director Woody Allen asked a court on Monday to prevent American Apparel from calling his wife Soon-Yi Previn and his ex-girlfriend Mia Farrow as witnesses in an upcoming trial.
Allen sued the U.S. clothing company for trademark infringement more than a year ago seeking more than $10 million after his image was used on billboards in New York and Los Angeles without his consent.
In court papers filed Monday, Allen's lawyers said a possible witness list provided by American Apparel Inc. included Allen, Farrow, Previn, his sister Letty Aronson and Hustler magazine founder Larry Flynt.
The motion filed in Manhattan federal court asks for a court order preventing American Apparel from calling witnesses and introducing evidence "concerning Mr. Allen's personal and family life."
The lawyers said any plan to put Farrow on the stand was "part of a brutish attempt to smear and intimidate Mr. Allen." We think Mr. Allen smeared his own reputation all on his own. He should have gone to jail for the crimes he commited against Farrow's young child. Anyone with less attorney money would have.
