Sienna Miller slaps paparazzi with lawsuit over harrassmentOctober 31st, 2008 - 12:17 pm ICT by ANI
London, Oct 31 (ANI): Sienna Miller has taken a paparazzo to court claiming that her life was made intolerable by a “campaign of harassment” by pursuing photographers.
The details of the alleged campaign came to surface during a preliminary hearing as the actor launched legal proceedings against the Big Pictures photography agency.
She claimed harassment and invasion of privacy, reports Guardian.co.uk.
Miller’’s counsel, David Sherborne, said the agency had made her life “intolerable,” and pursuit by photographers and the publication of intrusive images had caused her “substantial alarm, fear and enormous distress”.
The actress of The Edge of Love and Alfie is claiming damages from the agency and its founder, Darryn Lyons.
The court heard that the actor had been relentlessly pursued since June, resulting in a “gross and intolerable violation of her basic rights”.
Lyons and the agency are contesting the claims. (ANI)
