Tom Cruise Sues, UK Scientologists Sue, Narconon Is Sued: It's a Legal Free-For-All!! - 2012-10-25
By now you've no doubt heard that Tom Cruise has filed a $50 million lawsuit against Bauer Publishing and two of its magazines, Life & Style and In Touch, for claiming on the covers of a couple of issues in July that, following his divorce to Katie Holmes, Cruise had "abandoned" his daughter, Suri.
Cruise, in a complaint filed by his attorney, Bert Fields, accuses the magazines of writing checks on their covers that they couldn't cash inside — in other words, the stories themselves didn't have facts proving that Cruise had "abandoned" his daughter. While Tom did have a heavy work schedule following the divorce, Fields insists that the actor at least talked to his daughter on the phone every day.
Well, he may have a point there. But does that mean Cruise is going to get $50 million out of Bauer?
