Default Miami Vice boating accident settled

Miami Vice' lawsuit is settled

MIAMI (AP) -- Colin Farrell's personal dresser on the "Miami Vice" set has settled a lawsuit against the movie's production company two years after she fractured her jaw during filming.

Joulles Wright's attorney, Charles Lipcon, and the defendants' attorney, Bob McIntosh, confirmed Thursday that the lawsuit has been settled, but terms were not disclosed.

Wright, of Atlanta, was riding on a speedboat when an improperly secured bumper broke off and struck her in the face, according to the lawsuit filed in June 2006 in Miami-Dade County.

Wright, who had been hired as Farrell's dresser during the filming of the movie in Miami, allegedly needed surgery and had to have her jaw wired after the August 2005 incident.

The lawsuit claimed the speedboat was unsafe and the defendants did not give Wright adequate medical care, which aggravated her injuries and caused additional pain, mental anguish and lost wages.

The defendants involved in the settlement were MV Film Productions L.L.C. and Entertainment Partners Inc., McIntosh said.

"Miami Vice," starring Farrell and Academy-Award winner Jamie Foxx, is an update of the TV police series that helped define '80s pop culture.

Something doesn't make sense. For her to sustain that type of injury, they would have to be traveling at a high rate of speed...with a fender/bumper still attached?

The terms of the settlement have leaked out...

As a punitive action, producer Michael Mann and the two primary stars of the film, Colin Farrel and Jamie Fox, are going to be forced to view the movie.

"The lawsuit claimed the speedboat was unsafe."

Yea, right, blame it on the speedboat instead of the moron who forgot to remove the fender.
Hope she didn't get blood all over that smokin MTI...

Why the heck was she on the boat in the first place? Is that where he kept his clothes?

Are they sure she was a dresser and not a fluffer?

If that were the case, Colin Farrell would be the one with the lawsuit

That would explain the lost wages part.
