Jenni Rivera Wrongful Death Lawsuit To Be Heard In California
Huffington Post - over 3 years
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A wrongful death lawsuit filed by relatives of passengers killed in a plane crash last year with singer Jenni Rivera will be heard in Los Angeles, a judge ruled Thursday. Superior Court Holly Kendig rejected a motion by Starwood Management Inc., the operators of the downed Learjet, calling for the case to be dismissed in California and moved to Mexico. Rivera, a Mexican-American superstar musician, and six other people were killed in the Dec. 9 crash in northern Mexico. Relatives of Rivera's publicist, one of her lawyers, her makeup artist and a hairstylist sued Starwood and the singer's company in January. Starwood lawyer Mark Velasquez argued that the case should be heard in Mexico because many of the plane's records are in that country and investigators in Mexico were working to determine why the Learjet 25 plunged from more than 28,000 feet. Paul Kiesel, a plaintiff's attorney, said the plane was registered in the U.S. and Starwood is incorporated in Nevad ...

Huffington Post - over 3 years
If you need to navigate through an intricate criminal network across the border, Edward James Olmos is your man. Or at least that’s what his character Freddy Suárez is hired to do in John Sayles’ (“Lone Star”) latest independent film “Go For Sisters.” In the movie, Bernice (LisaGay Hamilton) is a parole officer who must enlist the help of Fontayne (Yolanda Ross), her childhood friend and current parolee, and a disgraced ex-LAPD detective (Olmos) to rescue her delinquent son who has gone missing in Mexico. The Oscar-nominated actor spoke with The Huffington Post on why this role is so different from anything he’s done before and why he feels Latinos still have “a long way to go” when it comes to representation in Hollywood. “Go For Sisters” brings together the lives of three very different people who are all risking something to save Bernice’s son.

Lionsgate Faces Two Lawsuit Over 'Filly Brown'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
There was a lot of hope for Filly Brown when it premiered at Sundance in 2012. The film about an up-and-coming Latino hip-hop artist starred Jenni Rivera, the Mexican American music superstar who tragically died in a plane crash late last year. When it was picked up by Pantelion, a film distributor backed by Lionsgate, many in the Latino community buzzed that if the film performed well, it would lead to studios focusing more on the Latino market. Now, six months after a modestly successful limited release, the producers and distributors of Filly Brown have been hit with a pair of lawsuits alleging that the film ignored basic contract work. In one of the lawsuits, for example, it's claimed that the movie never had any acting agreement with a principal castmember.
