American Gangster Lawsuit Dismissed
A U.S. judge has dismissed a federal lawsuit filed by former drug agents who claim that the movie "American Gangster" misrespresented them.
Former DEA agents had filed the lawsuit, claiming that the film had suggested they were criminals, and didn't accurately reflect their role in bringing down Frank Lucas, the title character.
The judge dismissed the case on the basis that it had no merit. The agents' lawyer plans to appeal the decision.
