A lawsuit filed by legendary actor-director Woody Allen against American Apparel, a clothing company famed for its provocative ads, has grown heated. Allen's $10 million lawsuit accuses American Apparel of using his image on billboards without authorization, but lawyers for American Apparel are refusing to back down, claiming Allen's image has been so tainted by sex scandals that its nearly worthless.
"Woody Allen expects $10 million for use of his image on billboards that were up and down in less than one week. I think Woody Allen overestimates the value of his image," said Stuart Slotnick, a lawyer for American Apparel.
