The judge has temporarily restrained the sex tape with Colin Farrell and Nicole Narain from selling, showing or distributing. Superior Court Judge David Yaffe issued a restraining order for Nicole Narain, blocking the public release of the 15-minute video tape with her and Colin having sex.
The lawsuit filed Monday in Superior Court seeks general and compensatory damages as well as a temporary
restraining order and injunction prohibiting the sale and exploitation of the videotape.
"We became aware that there was an attempt to basically get this tape out there in the marketplace by having various providers get it out on porn websites," said Martin A. Singer, Farrell's attorney. "It is unlawful to exploit a videotape without the written consent of both participants."
According to the suit, Farrell and Narain, who dated for two years, agreed, after the break up, that the 15-minute tape would be jointly owned by them and would remain private.
But it seems like Nicole didn't respect her part of the deal. She contracted an Internet pornography business and tried to sell the tape.
Farrell's lawyer also declared that this "outrageous attempt to capitalize on the celebrity of Colin Farrell... exceeds all bounds of common human decency".
The next court hearing is scheduled for Aug. 10.
