Roman Polanski Sues the People on His Lawn


Free-on-bail director Roman Polanski has filed a lawsuit alleging that his privacy has been violated by nosy photographers camped outside his Swiss chalet, where he's currently living under electronically monitored house arrest. He's seeking £700,000 and, hilariously, he just might get it since the complaint was filed in celebrity-friendly Paris, which has some of the world's strictest privacy laws. If he wins, it could spell the end of exceptional photojournalism like this.
