Sandler accused of stealing idea

Apparently, you don’t mess with the guy who claims to have originally come up with the idea for your movie.


Apparently, you don’t mess with the guy who claims to have originally come up with the idea for your movie.

The author of a 2003 webzine, 2005 comic book and 2007 novel all titled The Hair-Raising Adventures Of Jayms Blonde has launched a legal salvo against Adam Sandler, seeking to halt the June 6 release of Don’t Mess With The Zohan, E! News Online reports.

Ellis J. Pailet, a Louisiana attorney who represents author Robert W. Cabell, sent a cease-and-desist letter earlier this month to the comedian’s camp, accusing Team Sandler of ripping off his client’s ideas and threatening a full-blown lawsuit.

Sandler’s publicist, Cindi Guagenti, declined to discuss the claims or potential litigation. “We don’t comment on lawsuits, especially ones without merit,” she said.

Pailet notes in a May 8 letter: “Your transformation of our client’s gay character into your heterosexual character is not a fair use.”
