In a statement from her home in Paris, Dame Olivia said: “We must persevere and speak truth to power.”

“The fight is itself important to the principle of honesty, so much in need today in the face of deliberate public confusion for selfish agendas.”

The question presented for Supreme Court review is:

“Are reckless or knowing false statements about a living public figure, published in docudrama format, entitled to absolute First Amendment protection from claims based on the victim’s statutory and common law causes of action for defamation and right of publicity, so as to justify dismissal at the pleading stage?”

“Dame Olivia, who won Oscars for 1946’s To Each His Own and 1949’s The Heiress, previously won a landmark victory over Warner Bros in 1943 which effectively ended actors’ contract servitude.”…

    Our own Olivia will win this lawsuit at the Supreme court. She has been there before with her fight with Jack Warner. She broke the contract system when she was in her 20s all alone but Olivia was very tough and extremely sharp and tough in business. Errol’s gal will prevail in this case which will affect a lot of people dead and alive that are used in productions without the person or estate’s permission!
