John Travolta FORCED To Face The Judge In Cruise Ship Penis Suit!

john travolta cruise ship penis suit

And by suit, obviously we mean lawsuit!

Though it would be REALLY fun to see John Travolta prance around in a peen-shaped suit! That would just make our day! Ha!

But nope, we're talkin' legal shiz again.

After John's attorneys tried to assert that his ticket to the 2009 Royal Caribbean cruise included an agreement to settle any dispute between passengers and company through penetration arbitration, the judge declared there would be no such thing.

So now John is FORCED to battle it out against Fabian Zanzi IN COURT …unless they can reach a settlement.

Dov Charney's Sex Slave Lawsuit Heads To Arbitration

dov-charney-irene-morales-sex-slave-lawsuit-moves-to-arbitration.jpg

Finally some good news for Dov Charney.

A Brooklyn judge ruled on Tuesday the $250+ million sex slave lawsuit brought on by former American Apparel employee Irene Morales will be handled in arbitration, rather than open court.

The case has been on hold since March of last year when the judge ordered a hearing to decide whether or not it can go on since Morales signed an arbitration agreement when she quit in 2010.

Charney's lawyer Stuart Slotnick said of the ruling:

"The court granted our motion in its entirety and we expect the case to be dismissed in arbitration. The claims are bogus and frivolous and we expect they will be dealt with accordingly."

Morales' lawyers haven't decided whether or not they're going to appeal the decision, but if you ask Dov he thinks "it speaks for itself".

Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark Drama Returns…In Arbitration

spider man musical legal drama begins

At least nobody is likely to get hurt this time around…unless one of the lawyer's accidentally shuts a briefcase on someone's hand. LOLz!

To recap, back in June, the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society filed an arbitration claim against Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark producers on behalf of Julie Taymor.

The union claimed that Julie was owed approximately $300,000 in royalties, despite the fact that she was fired from the production.

Now,

Spider-Man: Take Out The Check Book! Spidey Producers Owe Julie Taymor $$$!

julie taymor owed money by spider man team

Back in March, we learned that original Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark director/co-writer Julie Taymor would retain her credits, despite the fact that she left the show.

We had heard at the time that one of the reasons she was being allowed to keep those credits was because "[the] producers have spent so much money that they don't have a cash payout for Taymor anyway."

Looks like credits might not be enough, because now the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society is filing an arbitration claim against Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark producers on Julie's behalf.

The union claims that Julie is owed approximately $300,000 in royalties, which she has yet to receive.

One of the lead producers on the show, Michael Cohl, says that the Spidey team is in the process of "trying to resolve financial disputes."

Hopefully they're able to work everything out soon! The show opens on Tuesday, and we can't imagine the producers would want something like this hanging over their heads.

Then again, Spider-Man has been plagued with so many issues, maybe they're just used to dealing with drama by now.

What do u think about all this Spider-Man dramz? Do U think Julie Taymor deserves $300k, even though she was fired?

Dov Charney's Arbitration Contract Revealed!

america-apparel-swimwear-ad-february-2011__opt.jpg

If you thought American Apparel founder Dov Charney was shady, you ain't seen nothing yet.

BNet was able to get their hands on one of the contracts models are forced to sign when posing for Dov because that's the only way they'll get paid!

By signing the "Model Release and Arbitration Agreement", the victims models agree:

-They won't sue Charney in court
-Any arbitration will be done in secrecy
-They can't go public with any damaging information (i.e. blogs, media, etc.)
-A breach of contract will "cause American Apparel irreparable harm", and the company can seek a temporary or permanent restraining order to enforce it

Wow.

They sure do go to great lengths to keep these girls quiet, which makes us wonder: what does Dov have to hide???

Will Ferrell And Larry David Lose Case Against JPMorgan!

will-ferrell-and-larry-david-fined-after-losing-case-against-jpmorgan

Ouch!

Will Ferrell and Larry David have both not only lost an $18 million arbitration case against JPMorgan, but were in return fined $634,000 for "discovery abuse and failure to comply with the forum's discovery rules!"

The two funnymen were aiding business manager Matt Lichtenberg in his case against the brokerage firm, claiming "unathorized and unsuitable purchases of unspecified preferred securities," but the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, which handles their complaints, ruled against them!

In FINRA's decision letter, they explained:

"After three motions to compel discovery by [JPMorgan] and three orders from the panel, [members of Lichtenberg's team] were still supplying ordered documents on the afternoon of the second day of the evidentiary hearing."

David and Ferrell must also pay $600,000 to JPMorgan for legal fees and $12,000 for arbitration costs.

Double ouch!
