los angeles - honestly, what kind of karma does american apparel have? every day seems to bring a new lawsuit or new whispers of bankruptcy. i don't get it, especially when - personally - i think their clothes are outstanding. but i digress. as it is a new day, there is most definitely a new law suit. this time it's waged by legendary hollywood director (not necessarily legendary for his good movies) woody allen. american apparel apparently used his likeness etc in ads last year, which enraged allen. he filed a $10 million dollar suit against them asserting that the ads ruined his reputation. american apparel is shooting back alleging that his reputatio was already ruined by his scandalous affair with his step daughter - who is now his wife - soon yi previn. good point! can't wait to see who wins this one.
