A federal court rules that Angelina Jolie didn’t copy the story for her directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey”, as claimed by a Croatian writer.
According to City News Service, a tentative ruling in Los Angeles aims to throw out the copyright infringement lawsuit against Jolie.
Back in 2011, writer James Braddock filed charges against the actress and the film company that produced the film, citing that it was partly based on the book “The Soul Shattering,” which he authored.
According to US District Judge Dolly M. Gee, the plots, characters and themes of the two works in question were not “substantially” similar.
Braddock meanwhile has been ordered to tell the court why his suit should not be dismissed.
