Judge Deciding on Suit Against Madonna

A judge is deciding whether to throw out a suit against Madonna and her husband because the other lawyer didn’t show up. The suit was filed by Vincent D’Onofrio, not the actor, alleging Madonna and Guy Ritchie broke a contract that involved him bringing them the idea for remaking “Swept Away.” Madonna starred in the remake and Ritchie directed it. The film was both a critical and box office disaster. Madonna has since moved on with a guest starring role on “Will & Grace” and a new CD, “American Life.”

D’Onofrio’s lawyer, Morris Getzels, missed a hearing because he says he thought it was six days later. When attorneys fail to show up, a judge can order them to show cause why the case shouldn’t be dismissed. However, Getzels says that’s unlikely in this case.
