Judge Judy SUED: You Screwed Me Out of My Fine China!

Judge Judy SUED: You Screwed Me Out of My Fine China!

Judge Judy got a really good deal on some used china and flatware … problem is the woman who owned the stuff claims the TV jurist essentially stole it right out from under her and now the scorned woman is out for blood.

Here’s the lowdown. Judy has a producer named Randy Douthit, who was going through an epically nasty divorce from Patric (that’s the way she spells it) Jones. The former couple had some expensive, Christofle tableware.

Jones has filed a lawsuit against Judy, claiming the jurist and Douthit entered into a fraudulent scheme to screw her out of the china and flatware, which she values at $514,421.14.

Jones alleges in the suit, filed by Bev Hills attorney Perry Wander … Douthit sold Judy the goods for a measly $50,000, without her knowledge or consent. Jones claims Judy knew full well the deal was revenge against her. Read more ->

Beauty queen sues agency for sexual battery

A former beauty queen has sued International Creative Management, claiming the firm and one of its top talent agents subjected her to unwanted sexual advances.

The lawsuit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of Claire Robinson alleges ICM and agent Jack Gilardi exploited the former Miss British Columbia and that she was sent to auditions for roles that didn’t exist or weren’t available to her. She alleges that one of Gilardi’s friends, John Rockwell, introduced her to the agent and in 2008 threatened and raped her.

The talent agency denies Robinson’s allegations. A phone message left Tuesday for Rockwell, who isn’t affiliated with ICM, wasn’t returned.

“ICM denies any and all wrongdoing,” said Michelle Suess, an agency spokeswoman. “Ms. Robinson’s allegations are completely baseless and ICM will vigorously defend this action.”

The class-action lawsuit also seeks to end a practice it calls “hip pocketing,” in which an agent sends young, aspiring actresses on fake auditions that quickly turn to sexual harassment.

Robinson’s suit also claims that Gilardi inappropriately touched her while en route in an ICM limousine to a stuntmen awards show in 2007.

The lawsuit seeks millions in damages and a judge’s order to end “hip pocketing” at ICM, which the suit claims has been going on for years. Read More ->

Crazy life of Hollywood Mad man

THE hellraising antics of Hollywood wildman Michael Madsen while filming in Wales have been revealed by his director.

In a rare glimpse into life on set with one of the planet’s biggest actors, Nic Auerbach tells how the Reservoir Dogs star:

Crawled around his on-set trailer on all fours barking like a dog while The Green, Green Grass of Home blasted out of a stereo; demanded a handgun, some Jack Daniels and a CD player – to play more Tom Jones; challenged his director to a duel after he disagreed with something in the script; and forced hotel staff to call on former world champion boxer Chris Eubank to help ‘neutralise’ the situation after Madsen ‘barricaded’ himself inside his room at one of Wales’ top hotels.

In an exclusive interview with Wales On Sunday, Auerbach revealed how Madsen – best known for his electrifying performances in hard-boiled thrillers like Kill Bill, Sin City and Reservoir Dogs – almost turned his Cardiff film set into an ‘Apocalypse Now-style’ war zone. Read More ->

Woman gets $141K settlement after being run over on beach – East Bay Times

SAN DIEGO — The city of Coronado has paid $141,000 to settle a lawsuit filed by a 24-year-old woman run over by a lifeguard truck while sunbathing on the beach two years ago, records indicate.

Assistant City Manager Jim Benson said that city officials agreed to a mediated settlement with Sarah Bouvet. City records indicate the check was dated Dec. 12, 2007.

Bouvet was hospitalized for two days with injuries to her lower body after the right tires of a lifeguard’s truck ran over her as she lay on her stomach near the Hotel del Coronado.

Bouvet’s attorney, Perry C. Wander, said she “still has some minor residual physical and psychological problems.”
