Judge Refuses To Dismiss Hilton's Alleged Contract Breach Case
PARIS HILTON has been ordered to stand trial by a judge who refused to dismiss a contract breach lawsuit against her.
Bosses at Worldwide Entertainment Group Inc. have charged the heiress with neglecting to honour promotion and publicity agreements related to her 2006 film Pledge This, claiming she owes investors a whopping $8.3 million (£5.5 million).
The movie executives claim Hilton was paid $1 million (£666,670) for her acting services and for "reasonable promotion and publicity" for the film, which featured the socialite/actress as the president of an exclusive sorority.
WEG spokesperson Michael Goldberg insisted Hilton's failure to plug the movie's DVD release cost investors more than $8.3 million, and a Miami Federal Court judge has agreed the case should be heard and is refusing a request from the heiress' legal team to dismiss the lawsuit.
The trial is scheduled to begin on 8 June (09).
