Borat deception charges thrown out by US judgeSeptember 11th, 2008 - 5:19 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sept 11 (ANI): A US judge has dismissed legal claims by a driving instructor and two etiquette teachers who accused the makers of Borat of deceiving them.
New York judge Loretta Preska, said in a ruling last week, that the film-makers do not hold any liability towards them because they had accepted money and signed agreements prior to any problem.
According to the report by the Associated Press news agency, the judge also pointed out that the plaintiffs have also agreed to appear in a “documentary-style” film.
Starring British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, Borat has raked in 150m dollars at the box office, reports BBC.
The film sees the 36-year-old actor playing an uncultured and anti-Semitic Kazakhstan journalist travelling across the US in pursuit of actress Pamela Anderson in the 2006 film.
While filming, one of the etiquette teachers urged Cohen not to talk about human faeces at the dinner table.
The film has already been at the centre of many legal claims, all of which have met the same fate. (ANI)
