The director is requesting that his former companion and wife not be put on the witness stand in his case against a clothing company.
Wired PR News – Woody Allen is seeking to stop his former companion Mia Farrow and wife Soon-Yi Previn from testifying for a case he brought against a clothing company. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the actor-director has requested that American Apparel Inc. not be allowed to summon Farrow, Previn (Farrow’s adopted daughter), others to be put on the witness stand.
As noted by the AP, Allen is suing American Apparel for $10 million, for allegedly using his image without permission in advertisements. Allen reportedly does not make product endorsements in the United States. An attorney for American Apparel Slotnick is quoted in the report as stating of the case, “after the various sex scandals that Woody Allen has been associated with, corporate America’s desire to have Woody Allen endorse their product is not what he may believe it is.”
