ouchie. I guess the best defense is a good offense. Like I said earlier, Bauer is doing a great job of turning lemons into lemonade... http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2013/12/tom-cruise-lawsuit-magazine-publisher-legal-fees/ (excerpt) Tom Cruise’s legal troubles are getting worse because RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that the magazine publisher he is suing for $50 million for libel and slander is fighting back – and asking the judge to order the actor to pay a portion of their legal fees. Lawyers for Bauer Publishing are asking Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Chooljian to order Cruise to pay $35,000 in legal fees associated with his attempt to tie the company to alleged anti-Semitism in his lawsuit over the publisher’s claim that he “abandoned” his daughter, Suri Cruise in the wake of his divorce from actress Katie Holmes. Cruise, a devout Scientologist, failed in his bid to connect his Bauer to Nazism and Hitler worship, after the judge ruled the publisher did not have to reveal whether it had any ties to alleged anti-Semitism. In a Los Angeles federal district court the judge said Bauer’s potential Nazi sympathies were outside the scope of the case and Bauer steadfastly denied having any Nazi ties or allegiances.
