Order in Paris Hilton case
Posted by David Markus
Judge Moreno ruled in Paris Hilton's favor on Monday (background here) -- she does not have to pay $8.3 million even though her film “Pledge This!’’ bombed. From Judge Moreno's order: “The court finds compelling evidence in the record that ‘Pledge This!’ lost money because the film’s inexperienced producers hastily cobbled together a wholly inadequate marketing plan.’’
But Judge Moreno's best case forever isn't over. He wants further briefing (and potentially a further hearing) on the issue of whether she has to repay any part of her $1 million compensation. Yay, more Paris Hilton in federal court.
