Frederic Truskolaski, an owner of Oops! and a defendant in the lawsuit, has opening up about the case to the website, saying, "We were totally expecting this decision, since in France when any magazine speaks about a celebrity's private life the magazine is automatically condemned." reports the publication's owners must hand over $8,814 (£5,655) to DiCaprio in damages and legal fees. In addition, editors must also acknowledge the Hollywood star won the lawsuit in an upcoming issue.
