'Duped' Students Sue 'Borat'

Dec 08, 2006 | 10:36am EST

Two male students who appear in Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan making racist remarks are suing the film's makers.

In the fifth Borat-related lawsuit against studio 20th Century Fox, the unnamed South Carolina students are seeking damages for distress caused by their appearance, and want the scene to be cut from the movie and its subsequent DVD release.

The plaintiffs, who filed their lawsuit last month, allege they were plied with alcohol and tricked into making the onscreen comments, and were made to sign release forms while drunk.

The pair also claim assurances were given that the film would not be shown in the U.S. Both men say they have suffered "ridicule, humiliation, mental anguish and emotional and physical distress" after appearing in the film.

A Los Angeles judge has adjourned the case until Feb. 27.
