Twentieth Century Fox, under which "Borat" was produced, has filed an opposition to the suit placed by two University of South Carolina students who claimed to have been tricked by the film's crew.

Taking a real action concerning the lawsuit placed by two college guys who alleged to be duped to utter improper remarks in "Borat" and sued to have the hit comedy pulled from theaters, Twentieth Century Fox as the flick's production company has filed a counter suit against the pair's which it described as a "fatuous" attempt to thwart free speech.

"Plaintiffs may claim that they were tricked 'into making fools out of themselves' and becoming 'unsuspecting players' in the movie 'Borat,"' the studio said. "They never contend ... that bigoted and misogynistic statements were put into their mouths."

Prior to the opposition filing, a temporary restraining order against the film's continued distribution was denied on November 9 when the twosome's suit was first filed. Following this, a hearing has been scheduled to be held on December 7 in the Santa Monica branch of California Superior Court on the students' subsequent request for a preliminary injunction.
