Sacha Baron Cohen Hit By New Lawsuit

SACHA BARON COHEN has been hit by a new lawsuit from a man who claims he was "accosted" by the British funnyman in character as BORAT in a South Carolina restaurant last year (05). Footage of the incident, in which Cohen posed as a toilet attendant, did not feature in his hit movie BORAT: CULTURAL LEARNINGS OF AMERICA FOR MAKE BENEFIT GLORIOUS NATION OF KAZAKHSTAN, but has appeared on the Comedy Central network and the internet. The plaintiff, who is not named in the lawsuit, accuses Cohen of invading his privacy by staring as he used a urinal. Staff at the Ristorante Divino told the man a tourist documentary was being shot on the premises but he did not see the hidden cameras in the toilet. The lawsuit makes no mention of a consent waiver and attorney JONATHAN MILLING insists his client was not paid. The plaintiff is seeking damages and an injunction to prevent footage appearing on future DVDs.
