We can't believe this ridic lawsuit is still going on!
Last month, we learned that an anonymous actress, who lives in Texas, had filed a lawsuit against the Internet Movie Database for $1 million because the website revealed that she is approaching 40 years old!
Now, Amazon.com (IMDB's owner) is striking back against the actress, and they're trying to get the case dismissed because the woman reportedly "first tried to get the service to post a false birthdate so she could fool potential Hollywood employers into thinking she was younger than she actually is." Ugh.
Here's what IMDB had to say about it:
"Truth and justice are philosophical pillars of this Court. The perpetuation of fraud, even for an actor's career, is inconsistent with these principals. Plaintiff's attempt to manipulate the federal court system so she can censor iMDb's display of her birth date and pretend to the world that she is not 40 years old is selfish, contrary to the public interest and a frivolous abuse of this Court's resources."
IMDb is also saying that if this case must continue, the anonymous woman needs to reveal herself because they're claiming they "cannot fairly defend against the Complaint in this case with the identity of the plaintiff secreted."
Makes sense to us! Sounds like it would be in everyone's best interest for this case to be dropped once and for all.
What do U think? Team IMDB or Team anonymous actress???
