(monstersandcritics.com) - Michael Douglas is being sued by a former business partner.
Zack Norman - who co-starred with Douglas in 1984 movie 'Romancing the Stone' - filed a lawsuit at Los Angeles County Superior Court yesterday (24.04.08), claiming the Oscar-winning actor breached his contract.
Norman claims he was promised $1 million as a reward for buying into a company that helped develop entertainment projects with Douglas - but never received the money.
Norman is now seeking compensation.
This is not the first time Douglas has been involved in a court battle.
In 1997, James Parker - a New York golf caddy - sued the actor for $25 million. Parker claimed Douglas had hit him in the groin with a golf ball, causing him to lose a testicle. He also lost his job.
The case was settled out of court.
Douglas is currently filming new drama 'Beyond a Reasonable Doubt' alongside Amber Tamblyn and Jesse Metcalfe.
