The lawsuit says that Amazon knew about a "25-year-old" allegation before signing with Allen in 2017, but still used it as an excuse to back out of the deal.

NEW YORK — Filmmaker Woody Allen is suing Amazon for at least $68 million, saying that the company ended a four-picture movie deal last year after old accusations against him resurfaced in the press.

The lawsuit, filed Thursday, says that Amazon knew about a "25-year-old" allegation before signing with Allen in 2017, but still used it as an excuse to back out of the deal.
================================================
There had been a story in 1992 that Allen had molested his then 7-year old daughter Dylan.

On the positive side, Allen is a superb jazz clarinetist & plays with his band at a Manhattan hotel. I recently viewed a DVD of a European tour titled 'Wild Man Blues.'

Good for Woody, I hope he wins.

Ditto. I'd like to see one of these companies get bit in the ass for yielding to public pressure. Unfortunately, there have been "incest jokes" about Allen so long that most people in the culture have already formed an unflattering opinion of the guy-- so his suit won't provide any ammunition against Toxic Liberalism.

The culture of allegations and its fatuous court of public opinion must be opposed as a dangerous stupidity by all right-thinking rational citizens.
I wish Mr Allen success in his lawsuit.
