James Nichols, the brother of Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols, is suing Moore for defamation of character. Moore used Nichols in his mocumentry, Bowling For Columbine. Nichols claims he was tricked into apprearing in the mocumentry. He also says in the lawsuit that Moore libeled him by linking him to the terrorist act in Oklahoma City. In the lawsuit, Moore is accused of libel, defamation of character, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. According to the Detroit Free Press, Nichols's attorney are asking for a jury trial and damages ranging from $10-$20 million on each of nine counts.

I'm not sure if this will go to court, but if it does Moore could be looking at a huge chunk of change being taken away from him. If you would like some more info on the story, click the link to the left.
