Bomb Disposal Expert Allowed to Sue 'The Hurt Locker' Filmmakers

U.S. Army bomb disposal expert, Master Sergeant Jeffrey Sarver, who claimed the film is based on his experiences, is given the OK to sue the flick's moviemakers.

A U.S. Army bomb disposal expert has won his day in court with the producers of Oscar-winning movie "The Hurt Locker" after making allegations the film is based on his experiences. Master Sergeant Jeffrey Sarver claims the movie's lead character, played by Jeremy Renner, is based on him but he was given no credit or compensation from the filmmakers.

Screenwriter Mark Boal wrote about Sarver in an article published in Playboy magazine in 2005, but he has maintained the film was a work of fiction.

But now the case is set to go to trial in California after a New Jersey judge ruled the Iraq war veteran can sue Boal and director Kathryn Bigelow. U.S. District Judge Dennis Cavanaugh has also denied the defendants' motion to dismiss the lawsuit.
