Paris Hilton Waves to Judge in DVD Promotion Trial10 Jul, 2009 By: Chris Tribbey
Hotel heiress Paris Hilton reportedly took the stand July 10 to defend herself against accusations in an $8.3 million lawsuit that claims she didn’t promote the DVD release of the 2006 film Pledge This!
The Associated Press reported that Hilton defended her choice to not attend some screenings of the films, and said she did everything she could to plug the release.
“If I have my name attached to something, I want it to be as big as it can be,” the AP reported Hilton testifying. “It could have been a lot better if it was done more professionally. I wanted it to do as well as possible.”
The AP also reported that Hilton waved at the judge on her way to the witness stand.
“I’ve never had a witness wave at me before,” Chief U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno was quoted as saying.
