Woody Allen-American Apparel Mishegas Ends; Allen Gets $5M


The American Apparel-Woody Allen lawsuit, in which all New York media had to pretend to be interested, as it promised to reveal salacious details about Woody Allen, Soon-Yi Previn, and Mia Farrow which everyone has either a.) heard or b.) reels with nausea to contemplate, has blessedly been settled. Allen will get $5 million in recompense for the unauthorized use of his image in an American Apparel ad.

American Apparel founder Dov Charney had said he would call Previn and Farrow to the stand to show that Allen’s reputation had suffered sufficiently that — excuse us; glug, glug, glug; thanks — that he was not entitled to substantial damages for AA’s unauthorized use. A judge disallowed this, and then some other stuff happened.
