Borat Trial Adjourned

by | 08 December 2006

The lawsuit brought by two US students who say they were tricked into making sexist and racist remarks in comedy film Borat has been adjourned until February 27th.

Representatives of 20th Century Fox, the producers of the hit film starring Sacha Baron Cohen as a journalist from Kazakhstan touring the US, appeared briefly before a Los Angeles court yesterday to deny the claims.

Both students from South Carolina are seeking unspecified damages and want the scene they appear in to be removed from both the cinematic and future DVD cut.

They claim the racist and sexist comments they made on screen were a result of producers giving them alcohol beforehand, adding that they had been promised the film would never be shown stateside.

Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan, has proved a massive hit on both sides of the Atlantic but has been subject to a range of lawsuits from people who claim they were misrepresented in the film.
