Marvad Sues Donald Thrasher Over Hilton Tape

The Internet porn company that hoped to distribute an X-rated home movie of Paris Hilton and her ex-boyfriend Richard Salomon has filed a breach of contract suit against Salomon’s former roommate for more than $10 million.

Seattle-based Marvard Corp. filed its complaint in federal court Friday against Donald Thrasher of Los Angeles, who sold Marvad the video. The suit alleges Thrasher mislead the company into believing he owned the rights to the video.

The company “suffered substantial damages arising out of the misrepresentations by Thrasher and his agents,” according to the suit.

“There was millions of dollars at stake here,” Marvad publicist Kevin Blagg said.

Thrasher maintains he did have the rights and that Salomon, a friend of 11 years, gave them to him.

“We had an agreement to sell the tape,” Thrasher told The Associated Press on Saturday. “He gave me the tape. Period.”

Messages left Salomon’s lawyer was not immediately returned Saturday.

The suit is the latest in a series of legal actions surrounding the video made three years ago, when the hotel heiress and reality TV star was 19.

Marvard reached an agreement last week with Hilton not to distribute any footage from the tape after learning she had not given consent for its public distribution, Blagg said.

Thrasher said he planned to file a countersuit against Marvard next week.

Salomon is suing Hilton for slander in connection with the tape. He is also suing Marvard and Thrasher for copyright infringement and invasion of privacy.
