*file photo* * ALLEN SETTLES LAWSUIT FOR $5 MILLION Hollywood filmmaker Woody Allen has settled his lawsuit with clothing company AMERICAN APPAREL INC for $5 million (£3.3 million). The Annie Hall director, 73, filed suit last year (08), claiming advertising chiefs used his likeness on billboards without his consent. He was depicted dressed as a rabbi in ads placed across New York and Los Angeles. Standing with lawyers outside of Manhattan federal court on Monday (18May09), Allen told reporters, I am told the settlement of five million dollars I am being paid is the largest reported amount ever paid under the New York right to privacy law.
