Eastwood’s Victory In Court
“I am pleased with the court’s ruling, and believe this judgment sends a powerful message to other online scammers who might try to illegally use someone’s name and reputation to sell their products,” Eastwood, 91, told The New York Post.
Justice R. Gary Klausner ruled that the Lithuanian CBD company Mediatonas UAB must also pay Eastwood’s $95,000 legal fees, on top of the millions in damages for using his name and likeness.
“Over a career that has a spanned more than 60 years, Mr. Eastwood has earned a reputation for honesty, hard work, integrity and public service,” said Jordan Susman, Eastwood’s attorney.
“He is also willing to do what is right and what is fair,” he added. “In pursuing this case, and obtaining this judgment, Mr. Eastwood has again demonstrated a willingness to confront wrongdoing and hold accountable those who try to illegally profit off his name, likeness and goodwill.”
