Lopez & Fonda Caught Up In Monster-in-law Lawsuit

JENNIFER LOPEZ and JANE FONDA have found themselves entangled in a lawsuit over their 2005 film MONSTER-IN-LAW amid allegations of copyright infringement.
Sheri Gilbert of North Carolina claims the film was similar to a script she wrote in 1998 about her struggles with her mother-in-law - and she's accused producers of the Hollywood hit of stealing her work.
According to the lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Raleigh, Gilbert and her husband Willie are seeking a share of the near $155 million (£112.9 million) the comedy made worldwide.
An attorney representing movie studio Warner Bros. and 33 other defendants, including Lopez and Fonda, has dismissed claims the similarities are more than just a coincidence, and is requesting that the lawsuit be dismissed, reports The News & Observer of Raleigh, North Carolina.
