MGM Responds to New Court Rule Reinstating 'Raging Bull' Copyright Lawsuit

May 20, 2014 00:48:02 GMT


On Monday, May 19, daughter of screenwriter Frank Petrella was allowed to take her "Raging Bull" copyright lawsuit against MGM back to the court. The 1980 movie directed by Martin Scorsese helped Robert De Niro win an Academy Award as best actor for his portrayal of the boxer Jake LaMotta.

Together with LaMotta, Petrella wrote the script in 1963 before he died in 1981. Rights to the screenplay were later given to his daughter Paula Petrella, who for some reasons, did not sue MGM until 18 years later. In 2009, she launched a $1 million lawsuit against the studio for copyright infringement of her father's script which she said the movie was based on. However, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Fransisco ruled back in August 2012 that she waited too long to file the suit.
