According to the suit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, Asian Pacific Islanders in Los Angeles (well over 1 million individuals) are each entitled to the minimum damages for a civil rights violation: $4,000. If you do the math, that’s around $4 billion. Sounds like enough to bankrupt Hannah Montana, and that’s only in the most forgiving scenario.
Lucie claims Miley, “…knew or should have known that her image would be publicly disseminated via the media, which Cyrus knew focused on her private life.”
Will this hold up? I’m not sure. It’d make one of us on the Ningin staff $4,000 richer if Ms. Kim & (big) co. win the suit. I’d miss out for being 40 miles away in Orange County. Regardless, it would be interesting to see this pull through. In the meantime, Director Michael Kang (Motel, West 32nd) has made a blog post on taking action by writing letters to Disney. Nothing riles up the entertainment industry like a good ol’ fashioned letter!
