DIANDRA DOUGLAS, the former wife of Hollywood legend Michael Douglas, has had her lawsuit against the actor dismissed by a Manhattan judge. Diandra was seeking half of Douglas' pay-check for his recent movie 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps', but the case was thrown out by Supreme Court Judge Matthew Cooper.
Diandra had argued that she was entitled to half of the profits from the Oliver Stone directed movie because Douglas had made the first film, 1987's 'Wall Street', when the couple were married. However, the judge ruled against Mrs Douglas, stating that New York was the wrong place for the case to be heard, since the pair's divorce was finalised in California. According to People Magazine, the Oscar-winning actor was 'very excited' by the court's ruling, and the actor's lawyer, MARILYN CHINITZ said, "This case should never have been brought in the first instance and certainly not in New York".
Despite the ruling, Diandra's lawyer NANCY CHEMTOB, insists that she plans to appeal, saying, "We respectfully disagree with the decision, and intend to appeal. Both parties are residents of New York, and the case should be decided here
