Failing to attend the court hearing for her legal battle with John Paul Horstmann, the 'Cougar Club' actress is ordered to pay the film editor his three weeks of unpaid work.
Hollywood legend Faye Dunaway has lost her legal battle with a film editor after failing to show up for a court hearing. "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde" star was sued by film editor John Paul Horstmann, who accused the actress of owing him $5,780 for three weeks' unpaid work.
She was due to appear at a small claims court in Beverly Hills, California on Thursday, April 7 to battle it out with Horstmann but did not attend. According to TMZ.com, the judge issued a default judgment against the actress, who will now have to pay out the full amount.
In December 2010, Dunaway asked court officials to postpone a hearing with Horstmann to give her time to recover after she broke her wrist in a fall.
