Paris Hilton cleared in PLEDGE THIS! lawsuit
We can all breath a little easier knowing that Paris Hilton has won the lawsuit filed by investors of the failed National Lampoon's PLEDGE THIS! movie and will not be responsible for paying $8.3 million, the amount the investors claim the film would have made. Investors also claimed that she did not do enough to promote the movie.
The judge sided with Hilton stating, "The court finds compelling evidence in the record that PLEDGE THIS! lost money because the film's inexperienced producers hastily cobbled together a wholly inadequate marketing plan," the judge writes. "They sent scattershot requests to their principal star in the hopes that she could find time to promote a sinking ship." Even the judge couldn't resist taking a jab at the movie when stating his opinion.
Hilton may still be liable to repay a portion $1 million she was paid for her role and promotional obligations.
