Rhonda Miller: no case

| 5 Comments

A judge dismissed the libel case of the stuntwoman who sued Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and his campaign staff for erroneously telling reporters she had a criminal past. The L.A. Times reports that the judge wrote an 11-page opinion kicking out the lawsuit, saying that Miller — one of the governor's alleged movie set gropees — put herself in the public eye so had a tougher libel standard to prove. Her evidence didn't come close to proving libel, the judge ruled. Miller is the stuntwoman who held a press conference after the Times' groping story came out five days before the recall election last fall, saying that Arnold had pulled up her T-shirt and sucked on her breasts during filimg of Terminator 2 and grabbed her breasts again during filming of True Lies. Schwarzenegger's campaign had denied the allegations. Miller's attorney says she will appeal.
