Roman Polanski is suing four French media outlets, including two newspapers and two magazines, for 150,000 Euros!
The director is suing for violation of privacy with the media publishing photos of the Swiss chalet where he was under house arrest and he was able to be seen through the window.
There were also photos taken of his wife, Emmanuelle Seigner, walking on a Swiss street and pictures of their two children, Elvis and Morgane, at the airport. The pictures of his children however were published with blurred faces.
We don't really see how it's illegal to publish photos of his wife considering the nature of the story and if the faces of his children are blurred it seems that the photogs were respecting the French laws.
As for the photos of him in the Swiss chalet, he wouldn't have had this problem if he had stayed jailed like he should have!
