Depardieu Ignores Court Summons
LATEST: French actor GERARD DEPARDIEU has ignored a court summons to answer allegations he headbutted an Italian photographer.
The Green Card actor stands accused of injuring paparazzo Dario Orlandi during a shopping trip in Florence, Italy with a female companion in October 2005.
Despite being ordered to a Florence court last month (Jun07), Depardieu failed to turn up.
Orlandi's lawyer Alessandro Ramerini says, "The ruling will be delivered only on April 16, 2008 because the judge handling the case has been changed.
"Depardieu could face damages or community service."
