James Woods Sues Twitter User for $10 Million
James Woods has decided to take legal action against a Twitter user who had sent defamatory tweets to the actor, calling him a 'cocaine addict'.
Woods has filed a $10 million lawsuit against a Twitter users known by the name of "Abe List".
AL replied to a tweet Woods made media priorities by saying 'cocaine sniffing James Woods still sniffing and spouting'.
The complaint made by Woods' legal team reads that the actor "is not now, nor has ever been, a cocaine addict, and AL had no reason to believe otherwise."
Woods went to LA's superior court this week to start the proceedings against the defendant, who according to his or her Twitter profile, happens to live in Los Angeles.
"AL's reckless and malicious behaviour, through the worldwide reach of the internet, has now jeopardised Woods' good name and reputation on an international scale," the complaint reads. "AL, and anyone else using social media to propagate lies and do harm, should take note. They are not impervious to the law."
"In the past, AL has referred to Woods with such derogatory terms as 'prick,' 'joke,' 'ridiculous,' 'scum' and 'clown-boy,'" the complaint states.
